How to remove other desktop environments?

I installed the XFCE and LXDE desktop environments just to test them out and see how they look. Now I want to remove them but I guess I'm not entering the right command in the Terminal. What's the correct command to remove these two completely? Thanks in advance!

Re: How to remove other desktop environments?

First, you need to list installed packages in terminal:
$ sh /usr/share/apps/q4os_system/bin/altde_util.sh --list-packages XFCE
$ sh /usr/share/apps/q4os_system/bin/altde_util.sh --list-packages LXDE

Remove listed packages this way:
$ sudo apt-get autoremove <listed_packages>

Just a word of warning, this will list q4os-network-manager, gksu, desktop-base and probably a few others that you might not want to remove...

Ive been using XFCE with Q4OS and installed it with Synaptic no issues and decided to remove it with Synaptic and also had no issues.

Same with a few other distros Im using.

Why not fresh install? It would help too, I suppose.
