How to uninstall deepin desktop?

I use Manjaro Gnome desktop I installed the deepin desktop and now I wanna remove it
please someone to help

Hi @sma-coding, and welcome!

How did you install it?

Please provide the output of:

pamac search deepin

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

sollicitudin dolor
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.

Instead of like this:

Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

For more information, please see:

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

thanks for trying to help

It seems you somehow missed my tip about posting terminal output:

Additionally, see:


Please provide the output of:

if any one can help here it is the lines I used to install
sudo pacman -S deepin

sudo pacman -S deepin-manjaro

If you’re sure, then uninstalling it is as simple as reversing it:

pamac remove deepin-manjaro lightdm deepin-extra deeping

Followed by removing any orphans (this is a good idea for doing periodically, in any case):

pamac remove --orphans

And making sure GDM is enabled again:

systemctl enable gdm

and then rebooting.


Having multiple desktop environments installed will inevitably lead to problems. Please see here:

Note #2:

If you removed Gnome originally, remember to reinstall it before rebooting:

pamac install manjaro-gnome-settings qt5cct qt6ct

Hope this helps!

so how to remove it from manjaro is it possible or I have to reinstall manjaro again so I won’t make the same mistake again and install the stupid deepin desktop

thanks alot the only helpfull post really thanks

He told you what to do.

is just as easy as:
apt remove ...whatever

Make sure you don’t have two display managers active - for Gnome, GDM is usually used.
So, gdm schould be active, lightdm should be deactivated or removed entirely.
