Running Debian Sid.
Like a fool, I installed cairo dock on my wife's laptop. Now I want it gone, and can't get rid of it. In fact, I can't even do an update. When I run apt-get dist-upgrade, I get
The package cairo-dock-terminal-plug-in needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
I've tried updating through smxi, and I get the same. I can't install a new kernel, can't upgrade, nothing, and I can't kill cairo dock. I've tried using synaptic, apt-get, aptitude, and everything else I can think of, and I can't get rid of cairo dock, or update the computer. I've tried editing sources.list, and that does nothing. Anyone have any ideas?
Update: I think I got it removed using dpkg.
sudo dpkg --forceall --purge cairo-dock-terminal-plug-in
seems to have done it. I'll be sure to remember to never touch cairo dock again.
