You can:
1) use the menu Applications → Add/remove
2) use the menu System → Administration → Synaotic Package Manager
3) you can use terminal, open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:
(if the system ask you a password give your user password, you will not see nothing when you type it, then press enter)

sudo apt-get remove program_name

substitute the program_name with the name of the installed .deb package.

Hope this helps
