I installed Cairo-dock using The Software Center, I didn't like it so I uninstalled it. It is still there, it still opens, but it isn't marked as installed anymore.

  • You can try running sudo apt-get remove cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins in a terminal. – Nattgew Sep 19 '14 at 16:37

  • I guess you also want to check sudo apt-get remove cairo-dock-core – Nattgew Sep 19 '14 at 19:32

For future reference, to remove the main Cairo-dock packages from the terminal:

sudo apt-get remove cairo-dock cairo-dock-core

If you want to make sure other packages are removed, you can also add the following:

cairo-dock-plug-ins cairo-dock-plug-ins-data cairo-dock-data
