I am running Ubuntu 13.04 on my Desktop. I installed KDE 4.10.4 but I dint like it. So I tried following instructions from this site to uninstall KDE completely but I keep getting the following error.
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done Package 'plasma-widget-telepathy-presence' is not installed, so not removed E: Unable to locate package kubuntu-docs E: Unable to locate package libkdcraw21 E: Unable to locate package libkipi9 E: Unable to locate package libktorrent4 E: Unable to locate package libktpcommoninternalsprivate3 E: Unable to locate package libokularcore1abi1 E: Unable to locate package plasma-widget-telepathy-chat

How do I fix this and remove KDE from my Desktop?

If you followed the directions from the site you indicate you'll note that it applies to 12.10. Is your system still in the state after attempted removal or have you restored from the backup the instructions suggest you make? –  Elder Geek Apr 30 at 23:21
