just so you know an apt-get remove may not remove all the files that
were installed by a package. if you want to be really sure that
everything is removed add the --purge command line option.

for example:

apt-get --purge remove mythtv-themes to remove ALL files associated
with that package.

also, you may have a bunch of old packages lying around on your system
taking up disk space so periodically it's not a bad idea to do an
apt-get clean to remove those packages. though it can be helpful to
keep around old packages for reinstalls so this is optional.

hope that helps!
