How to remove a package in ubuntu when you don't know its name ?

So I had this ubuntu alarm clock app installed, which I wanted to remove, but I couldn't find its package name.

So here is the command to figure out the package name of an installed app 

dpkg --get-selections | grep 

And woot, I've found it. Now lets get rid of it.

sudo apt-get purge alarm-clock-applet
