    Question How to remove kde-desktop

    I'm on ubuntu Jaunty: some months ago I made the bad mistake to install kde-desktop which I never use. now I'm getting into troubles everytime that i upgrade the system with synaptic, because it suggests to install all upgrades, included those ones for kde.
    How can I totally remove kde-desktop in the safest possible way?
    Thanks a lot in advance

    I did this but got:

    Package akregator is not installed, so not removed
    Package amarok is not installed, so not removed
    Package amarok-common is not installed, so not removed
    Package apport-qt is not installed, so not removed
    Package ark is not installed, so not removed
    Package dolphin is not installed, so not removed
    E: Couldn't find package dontzap


    I ran this command before:

    sudo aptitude purge kdelibs5

    Then:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm


    Now Gnome is have various elements of kde like mouse pointers and such.

    I installed KDE on Synaptic by adding kubuntu-desktop
