I've been having problems trying to remove qgvdial (QT Google Voice Dialer) since 11.04 and now I'm at 12.04 with still the same problem. I get the following error:

dpkg: error while cleaning up:
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:
qgvdial
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Any ideas?

I'm the author of qgvdial. I found this question because I searched on Google for qgvdial. Please see the project page at http://code.google.com/p/qgvdial/ to make a bug report.

dpkg -P --force-all qgvdial

That should purge it.

I take it you installed it via dpkg -i 'package-name' so try: dpkg -r 'qgvdial.
