How to Complete Uninstall VMware Workstation from Kali Linux, Ubuntu 15 - 16 and Debian 7/8

VMWare Workstation doesn't ship in a deb, so it isn't registered in dpkg (which is why you can't find it in the software center). It does have an install and uninstall utility though.
To uninstall VMWare Workstation, you will need to run:
sudo vmware-installer --uninstall-product vmware-workstation  
If you just run:
vmware-installer
by itself, it will print all the options you have available. If you run:
vmware-installer -l
It will print a list of all VMWare products you have installed.
Similarly, to uninstall VMWare Player:
sudo vmware-installer --uninstall-product vmware-player
