[SOLVED] Clear useless applications

Postby P1xel on Mon Apr 01, 2013 9:07 pm

So, I found out Linux is a good way to run emulators. I went to the software manager (linux mint 14 KDE) and installed vice, to find it was an old version apparently. So I uninstalled it. Just to find when I type in search 'commodore' i still get 6 options!! When I click on one, NOTHING AT ALL HAPPENS.
That's okay, because I deleted them, but how can I get rid of them? I already tried the autoremove function of apt-get.

This is not really urgent, but would just be nice if someone would help me :mrgreen:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Get rid of them from the menu? I don't know if there's a better way, but I usually just delete them using the "edit Menu" menu. Right-click on the menu button.

How about the ones that don't fall into any category????? This is KDE, so it can't show all applications in one big group to my knowledge
Anyway a reboot fixed the icons :D however it's good to know how to delete useless entries, thanks!

*facepalm* That's what I get for not reading again. It's Edit Applications in KDE.
And I do wish the default KDE menu behaved more like Cinnamon's. But when I was on Cinnamon, I wished the menu behaved like KDE's. Can't win them all.
