From: Paul Theodoropoulos via [] aptitude is a curses-based application that largely does the same as apt/apt-get. You can use apt/apt-get to purge the packages too.

dpkg --get-selections |grep gps

is a good one to use as well, as it will tell you the install status of the package - that is, if you ran 'apt remove', it will still list the packages, but they will be marked as 'deinstall', while if you 'apt purge', there will be no trace listed.

Regardless though, the 'rule' should always be that if you switch between a debian package and building the application from source, you really want there to be no trace of the debian package left behind before diagnosing the built application.

Thanks, Paul.  Something to try tomorrow.
