That still left a bunch of files. Can I just delete vmware directories? –  Costa Feb 10 at 16:09
sudo  vmware-installer -u vmware-workstation

Used to uninstall complete vmware-workstation package including vmware-player.

sudo vmware-installer -l
sudo vmware-installer -u PRODUCT-NAME

With the first command you can see what products you have. With the second you can choose which product uninstall
