[Solved] removing xserver-xorg-video-vmware

Hi there, I have seen that I have in my installation  "xserver-xorg-video-vmware". It was installed, probably, first time when I've installed Xfce. But I don't have any virtual machine running in my pc.
Searching to remove it I have observed that if I remove it also other components will be removed as: "Task-Desktop/Task-Xfce-Desktop/Xserver-Xorg-video-all".
I am afraid to reinstall all and lose all setting I have done.
Any advice?

Thanks

This really isn't related to Xfce in any way. It looks like a distro decision to ship certain packages. You should follow up at your distro's forum regarding this question.

Well, I've got it when I've installed from a live Xfce and not by my decision, for that reason I am asking here!

Re: [Solved] removing xserver-xorg-video-vmware

I guess you are using a debian based distro? if so all your mentioned packages are tasks or meta packages(https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/metapackages/)

eg: debian has a xfce metapackage that will suggest all other xfce packages if you remove it then xfce will miss some features but xfce should be usable if you keep: xfwm, xfce-panel, xfconf and xfce-session installed everything else(except their dependiencies) is optional and can be removed on the xorg side you mainly need x11-common and a proper input and video driver
