Deleting programmes
« on: December 14, 2018, 03:41:25 pm »
Pepermint 9. Using Software Manager I have disabled a superfluous Google Chrome Beta but it still appears in Menu although it can no longer be accessed. How to I get rid of it from Menu?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/share/applications | grep chrome
and
Code: [Select]
ls ~/.local/share/applications | grep chrome

Run:
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome-beta.desktop
and
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/googlechromebeta.desktop
is it gone from the menu now ?

First:-   removed '/home/geoffrey/.local/share/applications/google-chrome-beta.desktop'

Second:-  removed '/home/geoffrey/.local/share/applications/googlechromebeta.desktop

Yes. Thank you. Is there no other way of doing this sort of thing other than getting on the Forum?

Yes, the menu editor.

Right-click the "Menu" button, and select "Edit Applications" .. find the application on the left, then on the right select "Hide in the menu".
