There are several way to remove cairo-dock depending on which method you used to install it in the first place.

So if you are sure you want to delete cairo-dock please choose a method below:

From the repository
Open Synaptic search for cairo-dock and untick both [i]cairo-dock[/i] and [i]cairo-dock-plug-ins[/i] or from a terminal:

sudo apt-get uninstall cairo-dock cairo-dock-plug-ins

From the package

If you want to keep the configuration files:
sudo dpkg -r cairo-dock-plug-ins_++version++
sudo dpkg -r cairo-dock_++version++

If you want to completely remove the dock including the configuratio files:
sudo dpkg -P cairo-dock-plug-ins_++version++
sudo dpkg -P cairo-dock_++version++

The –force-all and –purge option are to force the de-installation of a package as well as its configuration file:
sudo dpkg --force-all --purge package_name

This last command is useful, but risky, if you want to completely remove a package as well as its dependencies and its configuration files when the normal apt method if failing.

From the compilation
There is no easy way to remove it when you compiled it. You have to go to the directory where you extracted the source and uninstall section after the other...

cd ++path_of_source_code++
cd cairo-dock
sudo make uninstall

cd ../'name_of_plugin'
sudo make uninstall
(repeat for all the plugins)
