I recently switched to ubuntu 14.04 and installed KDE plasma-desktop environment using this command :

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 kubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get autoremove
  • Note that even after autoremove, there will still be some applications left over from KDE Plasma. For example, you might find that Konsole is still installed. – Flimm Nov 15 '20 at 7:48
