    Talking How to completely remove gwibber?

    I have tried remove from ubuntu software center and Synaptic Package Manager, but when I reinstall Gwibber, it directly load from software list, and not download from internet. I want completely remove Gwibber, so if I want to reinstall Gwibber, my system download from internet and not install from database previous installation. How is to do it? Thank's.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    should do the trick.
    or maybe
    Code:
     sudo apt-get autoclean
    I forgot the difference.

    sudo apt-get clean & sudo apt-get autoclean are commands to clean up residual files after a program has been installed or removed.

    sudo apt-get remove & sudo apt-get autoremove are the commands to remove a program from Ubuntu.

    when removing apps via cli, you get additional information over residual files and how to remove them via the terminal.
