In addition, you can do the following and remove any package marked (ii) that is related to KDE.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -l | grep -i kde
If you trust the above command to only lists kde items, you can easily get the names and create a simple script to remove them all.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -l|ack -i kde|cut -d' ' -f3
