Or,
Code:
apt-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer phonon-backend-xine+
to do it all in one command (the plus sign at the end of phonon-backend-xine inverts the remove command for that package into an install command).

The reverse would also work, using a minus sign:
Code:
apt-get install phonon-backend-xine phonon-backend-gstreamer-

That's a good tip.I didn't know that.
Do you know if the command works with aptitude also?.

you can also have both backends installed and then select the xine backend in systemsettings->multimedia (just move it to the top).

the_trooper: this also works with aptitude ...
