First (in the kids accounts) backup the panel file:
Code: [Select]
cp -v ~/.config/lxpanel/Peppermint/panels/panel ~/.config/lxpanel/Peppermint/panels/panel.bak
then open it for editing:
Code: [Select]
gedit ~/.config/lxpanel/Peppermint/panels/panel

Remove the section that reads:
Code: [Select]
        item {
            name=Chromium
            image=chromium-browser
            action=chromium-browser
        }

or similar.

SAVE the file, and restart lxpanel to test:
Code: [Select]
lxpanelctl restart

Do you mean under "Preferences" in the menu ?



[EDIT]

Tidy that up a bit  .. so it's more like this:-

Code: [Select]
        tintcolor=#000000
        system {
        }
        separator {
        }
        item {
            name=Software Manager
            image=/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/icon.svg
            action=gksu mintinstall

SAVE the file and run:
Code: [Select]
lxpanelctl restart

No it's a main menu item like Accessories, Education, Games. Graphics, Internet etc it's not in a drop down menu, I tried to take a screenshot but for some reason it wont take a picture with the menu open

I don't mean a SUBMENU item of "Preferences" . I mean physically underneath the "Preferences" menu item.

BTW, check my edit above.

[EDIT]

You are editing the panel file in the kids account right ?

Sorry yes that's the one I mean, the entry physically under "Preferences" (between Preferences & Software Manager)

Yes I'm in Chloes account at the moment, I also tried cleaning up the config file & restarting but it's still there

Mark

It's possible what I'm trying to do may not work anyway becaus any SSBs I create in one user account doesn't seem to pass over to another so if I remove Chromium I wont be able to create any SSBs unless I access Chromium from the terminal, and secondly whatever I've done so far has meant I can no longer open Ice on Chloes desktop although I can still open it in the others

run:
Code: [Select]
rm -v /home/chloe/.config/lxpanel/Peppermint/panels/panel~
then
Code: [Select]
lxpanelctl restart
has Chromium gone now ?

[EDIT]

Don't worry about the Ice thing .. that'll be easily fixable.
