I am trying to completely remove some of the applications, using Synaptic Package Manager, that I have uninstalled in Ubuntu 11.04. I'm pretty sure I am doing everything correctly. I check the application as "mark for complete removal," but the Apply button stays unclickbable. I also tried 'sudo apt-get purge (application)', and that isn't doing it either. Is this a bug or what?
