Uninstalling package installed with package installer

Installed 2 .deb packages that are causing issues with my ubuntu-mate install.

How do I remove these packages?

How did you install those packages? You would use the appropriate remove command with the package manager.

apt-get remove <package-name>

dpkg -r <package-name>
