Getting Back to a Pure KDE on Ubuntu

Creative Commons License
This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Note, this applies only to Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty).

These removal commands were created based on what Ubuntu, Xubuntu, etc. packages were added to a default Kubuntu installation. It's possible that the commands might remove some other packages you have since added to the default and want to keep. If that's the case, keep track of which packages those are and reinstall them. Theoretically, your settings should still be there. I am not responsible for any damage you do to your *buntu installation. If you're worried about breaking anything, do a full back up of your *buntu installation.
