@BillThor: Actually it was installed by apt-get, but as I had some problems with that I got an advise on [tex.stackexchange.com] to install the package from TUG instead of Ubuntu packages. I'm trying in hope it will resolve my problem. Sorry if my English is wired.

@BillThor: The package in question was installed in some other directory than it should be according to above mentioned instruction, so I couldn't follow it to clean the remains. That's why I was looking for a methode to do it other way. Thanks a lot for your help.

@BillThor: Thanks again. I've found on-line instruction for installation of a package where is stated: If you're re-installing after a previous attempt, be sure to completely remove your old installation. So I understand that after running purge ~c I can be sure of that, or should I read further about aptitudes capacities you've mentioned in your reply?

@BillThor: Is the command aptitude search ~c right tool to list all the remains of uninstalled packages? If yes, would be sudo aptitude remove ~c right command to remove it safely? Or sudo aptitude purge ~c? I'm just getting to know how to use aptitude and I prefere to make sure if I'm not going to cause some damages. The other command I've found is sudo aptitude purge --purge _package_, but here I should know what package I mean.

@BillThor: Thanks a lot for a detailed reply. It seems I have to learn a lot before being able to use it, but at least now I know about what should I read.

maria@marysia-ubuntu:~$ find /var/lib/dpkg/info | xargs grep -l /var/lib/ldap maria@marysia-ubuntu:~$ - does it mean that non application uses the files in that directory and it can be safely removed? It would be strange, because I've installed texlive (but not -full this time) after removing it, so some of them should be used... The list I've posted is done after removing texlive-full but before installing texlive.

@BillThor: Thanks a lot. I was using to remove autoremove; autoclean was just while I was trying to clean the remains of uninstalled packages. I'll try to remove by purge ~c (it's ~, not -?) in the future. Maybe I was not clear, I wanted to know if there is any command which will list all what seems to be unnecessary so I could check and remove what should be removed. I can't check with grep each package... And what about content of /etc/texmf/hyphen.d/ ?

Ok, it seems a bit complicated for me for a while. Maybe with time I'll manage. Thanks a lot for your help.

@Lekensteyn: I'm not sure if I understand what you meant by He could mess up your guests. But the conclusion is that I should install once again, on guest account, all wine and VirtualBox applications? Or is it possible that I enable it if somebody needs using my password? It's much more important for VirtualBox
