i downloaded bandwidthd from here and tried to install it using Ubuntu Software Center.

It failed, but still it breaks my Xubuntu. Later i found that it is for 32 bit while mine is 64 bit system. Now apt-get no longer working because it stuck with bandwidthd error.

apt-get remove bandwidth, resulted in error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies: bandwidthd:i386 : Depends: ucf:i386 but it is not installable

sudo apt-get -f install, error:

 sh: 0: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory
    dpkg: error processing bandwidthd:i386 (--remove):
     Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
     reinstall it before attempting a removal.
    Errors were encountered while processing:

Please help me.
