[ubuntu] how do I completely remove an application

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Seems simple, but it doesn't want to work for me. Basically am trying to remove mediatomb completely, including all config files, folders...etc I have tried Code: apt-get remove --purge mediatomb That doesn't seem to remove it as I can still access it. SO what I have done is manually deleted the folders, now the problem is when I install it via apt-get again it doesn't create the folders again :( So as you can see I want to completely remove then reinstall it :) ?
