I don't know the program lanunchpad.

You can all installed programs remove with "sudo apt-get remove NAME_OF_THE_PACKAGE" in the terminal.

Hi. Firstly I suggest to check, which excatlly packages are installed and related to launchpad, e.g.: 'dpkg -l |grep lauchpad' command (without quotes). Next, remove packages which you want to get rid of, e.g.: 'sudo apt-get --purge remove pkg-name' command. I guess it's all.

For more informations about managing packages, please see man page for 'apt-get' utility ('man apt-get' command) or check https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Howto web site.

Best regards.

How does it show itself? Is it a plugin for an application.

More details please

Application

Then search software centre or use dpkg as people above have said and remove it
