I have problems with Banshee, and decided to remove it and re-install it, but I would like to make a complete re-installation. I used remove and purge, but still I would like to remove all user configurations left. I will appreciate any help!

Thank you!

Control+H to show hidden directories on Nautilus file browser; don't know where is banshee configuration files, maybe on .config or .gconf

You can install Synaptic from Ubuntu Software Center and select "Complete Removal" when selecting Banshee for uninstalling.

Alternatively you can run:

apt-get --purge remove banshee

If this doesn't help you can try this.

After purge and remove, I finally used sudo nautilus, and use CTRL-H to show hidden files, then looked for banshee-1 directory inside .local, .cache, .config, and I don't remember which one else, then reinstalled and that seemed to work. – Gilberto Garza Apr 10 '12 at 22:41
