Hi.
Well, tried a couple of times but it renders everything unusable. Dependencies are so silly like removing something at KDE removes XFCE and other non related stuff.
Is there a way to safely remove KDE and leave XFCE and related apps only?
Yes i know KDE looks good with pardus but i'm experimenting because of my old Athlon64 3000+/1 gb.Huh?  ... old? hmm... for KDE4 yes, my athlon64 is not enough even without bling bling turned on.

Pardus' managers are so closely integrated with KDE that I don't think you can remove them. But you can use XFCE desktop and applications without removing KDE packages.

I wrote about this in the Swedish wiki, but the command line should be understandable.

Install xfce
http://sv.pardus-wiki.org/XFCE

Replace KDM with GDM
http://sv.pardus-wiki.org/Ers%C3%A4tt_KDM_med_GDM

Uninstall KDE
http://sv.pardus-wiki.org/Avinstallera_KDE

Install managers
http://sv.pardus-wiki.org/Installera_Pardusspecifika_program

So I guess you would like to:

Code:
sudo pisi it gdm
Code:
sudo nano /etc/conf.d/xdm
Make it look like
Quote
# Preferred display manager
DISPLAY_MANAGER="gdm"

# Cursor theme
#XCURSOR_THEME=""
Code:
sudo pisi rm -c desktop.kde
Code:
sudo pisi it boot-manager firewall-manager kaptan history-manager service-manager network-manager display-settings user-manager disk-manager migration PolicyKit-kde package-manager
Code:
sudo pisi it kde-l10n-XX
Replace XX with your language code.

Good luck and be careful.

Actually XFCE is already installed and working but i wanted to get rid  of everything kde's
I will experiment with LXDE if the repo works one of these days.
