Looks like you ran into some sort of dependencies issue.

Uninstalling a piece of software just because you do not want it to behave
the way it is meant to behave may crash your system as a number of other
programs depend on that piece to work properly.

Whenever you try to uninstall a program, check first if other important
programs depend upon it. Synaptic alerts you about dependencies problems
each time you try to uninstall a package.
