Ubuntu: Cairo Dock is uninstalled but the entry is still there in the Ubuntu login screen


I have tried reinstalling it and then purging the package, but the entry is still there. I have used sudo apt-get clean as well and I have tried using deborphan. None of these will remove the entry. Is there any other way to remove it


You need to remove the package cairo-dock-data


Go into Synaptic Package Manager and search for cairo-dock. You'll notice that some of them are still there. Click them and mark for complete removal until they're all marked to be uninstalled. Apply.

Another method that I saw (I didn't try this because the Synaptic method worked for me) is to run this line in the terminal:

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins cairo-dock-data cairo-dock-core cairo-dock-plug-ins-data
