The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libshairport1 libsdl-gfx1.2-4 libcec1 screen libtre5 libtinyxml2.6.2 xsel libnfs1
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
indicator-sound libcanberra-pulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pulseaudio-module-gconf pulseaudio-module-x11 ubuntu-desktop
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 7 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
After this operation, 4,341 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? n
