How to remove PulseAudio on Ubuntu 10.10

I am still using Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) as Unity/Gnome3 sucks. I was looking for a way to remove the userspace pulseaudio from Maverick.

To remove pulseaudio completely:

$ sudo apt-get purge libcanberra-pulse pulseaudio pulseaudio-esound-compat
pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pulseaudio-module-gconf pulseaudio-module-udev
pulseaudio-module-x11 gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol

This will remove pulseaudio from your system and it will also remove your volume applet on your top panel. To get back your audible world:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dtl131/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-applets gnome-media gnome-settings-daemon libcanberra0

Restart Ubuntu.
