You can also do this in Synaptic by right clicking on the package and selecting "remove completely".

I like hyphens. God put them there for us to use, rather than make a new word out of two old ones! This is not German.

Thanks to you all, dropbox seems to have fixed itself and is working now after a fresh boot (don't know why a restart didn't have the same effect?)

But now I know how to uninstall, eh?
