The question may seem a bit paranoid, but nevertheless it greatly worries me. The bottom line is that I switched to linux just this week and if in windows I knew exactly when the system operates normally, and when it blows then now I'm not sure of anything. In win I knew exactly what and where put and where I have that stored in linux I am in the dark. When I click to set a particular soft swinging bunch of packages, can I be sure that removing them all has worn off or that swayed just the right packages that all packages are the current versions? I have ati vidio card and despite the fact that wow launched, and now it crashes vlc when switching to full screen, when you install the desktop effects at the maximum application deployed in 3 seconds, how do I know what is the reason for the limit of the computer or the curves of the wood in the video? In General, as you know that your system is OK or Vice versa is bad?

As for the removal, there are nuances:
— a simple uninstall (apt-get remove) removes the application files, but does not remove the settings (similar to windows not cleans the registry, and program files is not always completely some settings.dat will be), that is, by installing the application the next time you get the same settings that were
— complete uninstall (apt-get purge) removes all the program and settings
— automatic cleaning (apt-get autoremove) — remove no longer needed packages (the ones that were pulled for dependancies to other, already deleted, packages and more the system does not use)
Verify the integrity of dependencies apt-get check — it can help in case when installing/removing emerged of a fatal error
Synaptic package Manager too, as it supports these commands

To check the rendering (maybe the driver did not stand up) with the command "glxinfo" ("glxinfo | grep render" — skip a bunch of technical information) — must be the string "direct rendering: Yes" and the string is somehow related to the GPU, to estimate the speed at the "glxgears"
\r
PS I'm in Windows I do not know where that is written when you install/run the application, it was necessary to put the type of program Ashampoo Uninstaller and/or FileMon/RegMon such unexpected places at times came across that the "knee" of the trousers that the "true" program from MS

1) as for the packages — as long as you install all of the native repositories, can be absolutely quiet.
2) You would be back with specific questions about the graphics card.
3) If everything works, meets your needs, then the system is fine. If not — ask for help.
