How can I properly uninstall the complete opengeo suite in my Ubuntu 12.04? I had installed opengeo suite but it seems there was some error in the PostGIS extension to the Postgres of the OpenGeo suite.

So I need to now reinstall it. What is the best and safe way to uninstall it properly and reinstall a fresh copy?

To completely remove the OpenGeo Suite, use:

sudo apt-get --purge remove opengeo-suite

on the command line. I don't think Ubuntu 12.04 is officially supported by the OpenGeo Suite. You'd be better off using an older version. Or a VM if all you want to do is test it.
