I forced installed (on wrong architecture)

1)Peazip
2)flash player

And both of them do not appear in the synaptic package manager...how do I uninstall these?

Also I installed ddresuce by apt-get, but it did not appear anywhere.

No one?

try sudo apt-get remove name of the program
or sudo apt-get purge name of the program that did it for me

2 packages got removed (one by each technique).

Is there anyway to view all the packages (specially such sort of 'hidden' packages)?
