sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install plasma-desktop

...And now , after using it for few minutes ,i want to delete it.I have tried to remove it through this command:

sudo apt-get remove plasma-desktop

but it still appears in the login options.....``

    plasma-desktop is a metapackage: one that just points to others to install. I believe the way to remove KDE is to run sudo apt-get purge plasma-*, but please be careful and make sure the remove list mainly has packages that involve KDE. – TheWanderer Jan 31 '16 at 14:24

this worked for me

sudo apt-get remove plasma-desktop
sudo apt-get autoremove
