I uninstalled KDE, but still some changes need to be done.
Hi, I recently Installed KDE on Ubuntu Edgy, now i uninstalled it (for install "sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop" for uninstall sudo aptitude remove kubuntu-desktop") now, after uninstallation finished I am here and cannot shot down, restart my system.
- Terminal won't load.
- Most programs wont load. (Lucky 4 me, firefox loads)
- When i press "quit" nothing happens.
- "Filesystem" wont open.
I ran the uninstall command from terminal in gnome. now what do i do?, i want to get my system back where it was before installing KDE in the first place. But meanwhile, im stuck with my system on, and not much that i can do. All help, ideas, enlightment and ideas are appreciated.

Reason: frantic title
For some reason ctrl + alt + backspace (x server restart) did the trick, it allowed me to reboot etc. now i am going to proceed removing what the link told me to. Thanks, for the help! I appreciate the basically immediate help provided! I'm happy cuz i did not have to brutally shut off my system. Urgency is now less.-after following the instructions in the link above- My question now is, filesystem is now in KDE format (only two folders are shown, media and home) how do I get it to look like it initially did in Gnome?, thanks for everything again,
-and now that urgency is gone, I'm sorry for the frantic title-

if you ever get back your system to a normal state , i think except for gnome and kde ... try your best not to "install" any de/wm the usual "clicking and packages" way ... can be a bit get tied up too much with "un-concerns" sometime ... in fact , the majority(i think) of them are just a single independent "app" ...
Take the Ubuntu install CD or DVD, put it in the tray and reboot as if you where going to install anew.
Follow the same process as if you where to actually install.
It will ask you whether you want to install or upgrade. Choose upgrade.
This should force Gnome to run the first use wizards as if you just installed it.
Hi, I have the edgy live cd, so is this going to work, and if it does, do i do the regular install (the one that is on the desktop of the live cd)?
-I booted the Edgy Live CD, ran install, and got to partition manager, at that point i did not see an "upgrade" option so i canceled, and backed out. -Further observations, i downloaded kubuntu Edgy live cd (for archiving and possible future reference) and when i insert that disc into my system i get an automatic message asking if i want to upgrade, this does not occur when i insert my Ubuntu Edgy disk.
The current problems i want to fix at this point are
-Filesystem only displays two folder, home and media.
-While system is loading i get a screen saying "Kubuntu" with blue progress bar, and then Gnome Ubuntu loads, when i shut down the normal "Ubuntu" text appears and the orange progress bar.
-CUPS (Printer) not working. (Not sure if it's a factor)
That's all i want to fix at this point, but i have observed that "soundKonverter" and "oKle" are still on my system, i have left them thusfar, let me know if that has anything to do with my problems. Thanks for all assistance,
