How to uninstall a program?

Friends help Nuba, put by means of program Manager - Gitter onto the desktop. Now I want to delete, run the same Manager find gitter and click remove, I log "failed to remove".
Want to put Skype and viber, you get a dialog box saying if you set the gitter be deleted, click OK, and again the same story. How to be and how to live with myself?
the text from the terminal. Teach how to do it manually.
rm: cannot remove '/ usr / local / bin / gitter': No such file or directory
rm: failed to remove "/usr/share/applications/gitter.desktop ': No such file or directory

sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove gitter
sudo aptitude remove gitter
sudo apt-get remove gitter
sudo apt-get purge gitter

apparently failure to remove or the package clumsily.

open the file /var/lib/dpkg/status
removed line regarding gitter
