Unable to Uninstall Python

Asked by abhisheksreepal


I had Python 2.6.2 on my ubuntu 9.04
I installed Python3 and Python 3 IDe and simultaneously removed Python 2.6.2 from Add/Remove

When I run this command(python -v) to check out the version of python - Ubuntu says 2.6.2 even though i removed python 2.6.2

When i ran python3, and when i use Auto complete feature, application crashes.

In Add/Remove , Both Python2.6,python 3 and Python 3IDE are installed

Now I am unable to uninstall python 2.6.2 and python 3.
