I installed Cairo Dock to try it, but I did not liked it. But uninstalling in the Software Center did not work, because the Cairo Dock is still sticking at the bottom of my screen. Here on askubuntu.com i found many answers and i tried nearly all of them, but i still see the Cairo Dock down there at my screen, and often the terminal said that "cairo-dock" is not installed or similar errors.

Please help me, because the this dock is a very annoying thing on my screen.

You can try that command , it's helpfull :

sudo apt-get purge cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins && sudo apt-get autoremove

If you want to keep the configuration files:

sudo dpkg -r cairo-dock-plug-ins_++version++ 

and

sudo dpkg -r cairo-dock_++version++

But if you want to completely remove the dock including the configuration files:

sudo dpkg -P cairo-dock-plug-ins_++version++ 

and

sudo dpkg -P cairo-dock_++version++

I wish that be usefull :)
