I've installed kubuntu-desktop to try. KDE disappointed me, I removed it by means of sudo apt-get remove --purge kde-*, then autoremove (it is well known that just sudo apt-get remove --purge kubuntu-desktop doesn't remove anything). But parts of KDE L&F (icons, fonts&colors) polluted Unity and Xfce environments. It looks really ugly. I've "reinstalled" Unity (apt-get install ubuntu-desktop), it doesn't help.

Why downvote? What is wrong with my question? –  leventov May 9 at 9:02

@Braiam it would be useful before I removed kubuntu my (apparently wrong) way. Not aptitude don't find any kubuntu deps, but L&F remains a crappy mix of kubuntu and unity parts. –  leventov May 16 at 3:33
    
Can you do aptitude search '?reverse-depends(kubuntu) and aptitude search '~Gkde'. –  Braiam May 16 at 10:38
    
It should have been `aptitude search '?reverse-depends(kubuntu)' the first one. –  Braiam May 16 at 12:17
