And after that: make a backup (restore point) with Ubuntu Tweak.

Hint: save a former kernel on a test edition just in case.

Thanks for the tips, but when dealing about kernel backup is a must

$ uname -r

This will give you your current kernel version. e.g. 2.6.32-25-generic

$ sudo apt-get remove –purge 2.6.32-24-*

This will remove the previous version from your machine.

Hi! In Ultimate Edition v. 2.7, this message appears into Ubuntu Tweak when I click on ‘Package Cleaner’: ‘This feature isn’t currently available in your distribution’. G’bye.
