Uninstalling Kiba-Dock in Kubuntu


Hi! I'm trying to uninstall the SVN version of Kiba-Dock (from "deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/3v1deb edgy beryl-svn") but I'm getting the following error:

Code:
neoakiraz@fcksys:~$ sudo aptitude remove kiba-dock

Any idea? I want to switch to the kiba-dock_0.1-1.2_i386.deb version I downloaded since it seems to be quite different from the screenshots I've seen. Thanks!

Ok, I tried to install gconf package (I'm using KDE), thinking it may include gconf-schemas to stop the error uninstalling kiba-dock, but it gave me: "There was an error commiting changes. Possibly there was a problem downloading some packages or the commit would break packages" and stopped in 50% of the installation. However, Adept Package Manager shows it as installed now. So I tried to completely install it from command line, and then to remove it, but it only showed errors:

I don't know why kiba-dock shows up here... It gives me the feeling I'm screwing everything up... I think I wont try more of my 'ideas'.
Any advise? Thanks...

Ok, I just removed that line from kiba-dock.postinst and the other dpkg kiba-dock scripts and uninstalling was "succesful". I extracted the package kiba-dock_0.1-1.2_i386.deb with ARK and could see that there are a lot of references to gconf-schemas, so I'm pretty sure the installation will fail too.
The question is, what is gconf-schemas? I don't have it in KDE, should I install it?
Or maybe the .deb package I downloaded isn't intended for Kubuntu?
