Uninstalling using Package Management


I have been trying to remove a few applications from my computer using the gui-based tool in FC2. I click "System Settings" -> "Add/Remove Applications" and I get a window that says "Package Management" at the top. There is also a title that says "Add/Remove Applications"

I go into one of the sub-menus, such as "Printing" and deselect "HP office jet....". When I click update, it comes up with an error saying "Packages not found..." and gives a list of files, such as "". This file and all of the other files it is missing are located in /usr/lib. I tried adding /usr/lib to $PATH, but that did not help.

Anyone have an idea what I can do?
