I have just updated to Kubuntu 15.04 but in KDE there are lots of problems. After installation is broken. So I need to remove Kubuntu 15.04 completely and reinstall it.

Before I was using Kubuntu 14.10 which works great for me but after update to KDE 15.04 the system is not working and crashed many times.

The problem I have faced is at installation of kbuntu - it hangs on 72% then, after many hours wait, I restarted my laptop. Now nothing works. So I have restarted in recovery mode and fire Ubuntu update command and I am back with Kubuntu.

But there are still a lot of problems, so I decide to remove Kubuntu and reinstall it fresh copy.

Please help me!

  • Just reinstall Ubuntu. It will recognize that there is a Kubuntu system already installed, but it will offer you the option of overwriting that. Backup important files first. – Jos Apr 29 '15 at 8:45

(all the packages that were installed with kubuntu for me, could be different for you).

You can find the packages to remove in this file:

/var/log/apt/history.log

after the line

Commandline: apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
