I'm refering to removal of: .config .gnome .gnome2 folders. But those 2 commands are ok too.

If I understand you correctly I think you need to run 2 separate apt-get 
commands, firstly to fix any broken packages / dependencies:

sudo apt-get -f install

When entered into terminal, (it will prompt for password, don’t worry if 
you don’t see anything that’s normal).

Then to remove any unwanted packages:

sudo apt-get autoremove

If I have misunderstood your question I apologize and I am sure someone 
else will be able to help you further
