I was playing around with the x server and LXDE in ubuntu server and installed it using the command sudo apt-get install xorg lubuntu-desktop. When I went to uninstall it, by using the command sudo apt-get remove xorg lubuntu-desktop --purge then sudo apt-get autoremove, I notice that the space freed up is less than the amount installed. Also, I still have some files and commands left over from X such as startx and lxde-session. How do I get rid of these?

The computer also boots up as lubuntu.


Test this:

Run it:

sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get install --reinstall aptitude deborphan

aptitude remove '?and(?reverse-depends(lubuntu),?not(?reverse-depends(?exact-name(ubuntu))))'

apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get --purge remove $(deborphan)
deborphan --libdevel
apt-get --purge remove $(deborphan --libdevel)
deborphan --find-config
dpkg --purge $(deborphan --find-config)
apt-get autoremove
apt-get clean
