You were almost done. Add an asterisk (*) at the end of eclipse word. sudo apt-get autoremove eclipse* rm -r ~/.eclipse/ Today I have encountered the same problem and searched for a solution. I have seen this question. I have tried the same steps but failed. Then a friend of mine used those commands above. It removed all about eclipse.

In my opinion it should be safe. The way that apt-get works is as follows: when you do apt-get install , it will automatically resolves all dependencies and install all extra packages that are necessary to install . however, when you remove , all of the automatically installed dependent packages are left on the system, which is what you see above. apt-get ...

You can get bluntly past this by just getting rid of the pre-removal script. This is a last resort, but useful for dealing with broken packaging scripts, which seems to be the case here. Instead of actually deleting the script, I'll post a command that merely renames the script, just for safety. sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/ubuntu-xboxdrv.prerm ...

I think that dependencies are really too tangled to the presence of a desktop for making this thing possible. You can check the remove command in simulation mode, for example: apt-get -s purge ubuntu-desktop whatever more ...but in my experience you end deleting too much. BTW, trying to remove ubuntu-desktop does nothing because it is just a ...

If you are not seeing thing in low graphics mode or any hitches, than X was re-installed correctly and it should be ok. If there wasn't already a solution I also might have tried to just do a full system upgrade or dist-upgrade, or apt-get install ubuntu-desktop or apt-get upgrade ubuntu-desktop and let the dependencies flow. Also going into the System -> ...

When you install a package, it may also need to install dependencies for it to work - for instance installing torcs (e.g. with sudo apt-get install torcs), it needs torcs-data etc to work - they are also installed, and are fairly large in size (so also take time to download etc). When removing torcs (e.g. with sudo apt-get remove torcs), it will likely ...

If you haven't modified anything in \EFI\Microsoft (as it looks to me), then deleting the ubuntu folder next to the Microsoft folder should be sufficient. (If you have modified the contents then you should overwrite the Microsoft directory with Windows' bcdboot, have a look at the related section for instructions.)

Here's a list of packages you removed (scripted out from the log of both commands): http://paste.ubuntu.com/8716702/ At first glance, I'd say you should install xubuntu-desktop, which will bring a lot of your ...
