Konsole and apt-get to the rescue.

If you want to install vmware-player:
Open Konsole (kmenu -> system -> konsole)
Run the command:
$ sudo apt-get install vmware-player

If you don't want it:
Open Konsole (kmenu -> system -> konsole)
Run the command:
$ sudo apt-get --purge remove vmware-player

Hope it works for you.
