I hope I didn’t miss a similar forum entry that would help my problem without bothering you.
I’m currently using GNOME 3.36.4 on my laptop, but have experienced crashes and regular freezes since a friend helped me install Manjaro about a year ago. The issue it seems is that gnome is too much for my laptop, a DELL Inspiron 13 7000 with 8go of ram.
So I’m thinking of switching to xfce, which would correspond more to my hardware it seems. But I’m quite unsure about how to do it without messing things up.
Is simply removing gnome with pacman or the terminal and then install xfce going to work ? Should I remove also other packages or dependencies along with gnome ? And how can I erase it from my computer so it doesn’t take too much space ? Installing xfce seems fine with online documentation, but being a newbie I’m afraid I might break things up with a bad switch from one desktop env. to the other.
Thank you all in advance !
