How can I safely remove desktop environments from Ubuntu Studio login screen?

Spread the love

I have been using Ubuntu Studio several years now. Seem to have a bunch of redundant offerings for apps, etc. listed as installed. While I have logged onto the Xfce interface for emergency Cinnamon failure, I’m happy with just the latest Ubuntu Studio and the latest Cinnamon.
So the logon screen seems to have too many offerings and I think some can go as I don’t know what they are and never use them. With that said, I would like to safely remove Xfce also because of all the duplicate menu entries for Users, etc. in my Cinnamon interface. The current list I can log onto is as follows:

Cinnamon (Software Rendering)
GNOME on Xorg
GNOME on Xorg
Ubuntu on Wayland
Xfce Session

Any advice on what and how I can safely remove anything I don’t need from that list while keeping Ubuntu Studio Cinnamon would be appreciated. Thinking Synaptic might be the best tool. Eager to clean things up but don’t want to break my existing system.
