For this to work, the best way of doing this is to first install a alternative Desktop Environment.
In this tutorial Gnome will be replaced with XFCE.
- open a console/terminal and become root. (of course you can also do this with Rigo
- install your alternative Desktop Environment: this can be KDE (plasma-meta), mate, etc. We're using xfce for this demonstration.
# equo install @xfce --ask
for Rigo: enter:xfce4-meta in the searchbox, select the package, and click install,
or install directly using a shortcut in the searchbox: do:install xfce4-meta accept the licence agreement.
GDM will also be removed, so install a alternative LoginManager: (in this case, i choose lightdm, it works with everything)
# equo install lightdm
Remove from boot entry starting GDM:
# systemctl disable gdm.service
Now enable new LoginManager to start at boot:
# systemctl enable lightdm.service
When done, logoff, and logon again into the fresh installed Environment. (NOT Gnome)
So now we're logged in with XFCE.
- install and open your favorite terminal (except Gnome-terminal), and become root.
- enter following in the terminal:
# equo install gentoolkit # equery list "*" | grep 'gnome\|evolution\|folks\|evince\|deja-dup\|brasero\|totem\|mutter\|shotwell\|eog\|cheese\|gedit\|libgdata\|geocode-glib\|gnote\|baobab\|glib-networking\|caribou\|rhythmbox\|grilo\|libgweather\|alacarte' | xargs equo remove --nodeps
Now we need to check for possible broken dependencies and libraries that may pull something back in.
# equo deptest # equo libtest # equo conf update # reboot
