Uninstalling Lubuntu

If you tried lubuntu-desktop and decided you didn’t like it, you’d probably be right in thinking a quick removal of the lubuntu-desktop package would do the job. Well it didn’t (for me). Here’s how I fully removed it:

Open a terminal and run this command:

sudo aptitude purge abiword aqualung cheese epdfview galculator gnome-mplayer
gnumeric gpicview leafpad lubuntu-artwork lubuntu-default-settings lubuntu-desktop 
lubuntu-plymouth-theme lxappearance lxdm lxinput lxlauncher lxrandr lxsession-edit
lxshortcut lxterminal mtpaint ntp obconf osmo parcellite pidgin powernowd 
pyneighborhood simple-scan sylpheed transmission wvdial xarchiver xfburn 
xfce4-taskmanager xserver-xorg-input-evtouch

In order to fully remove it.
