Remove "Places" and "System" from Mint Menu?

Postby Ironfrunk on Sun Feb 14, 2010 3:15 am

I added the Mint Menu to the Cairo-Dock along with a few programs and a few other objects.
I wish to remove the "Places" and "System" entries from the Mint Menu entirely (refer to image).

I don't see any way to remove them via the Main Menu editor.
I'm assuming there's another way to do so... because something has to make it appear there :lol:

Anyone have any ideas/solutions?

That doesn't look like the mintmenu, it looks like the GNOME main menu which is not the same. To change the look of the mintmenu you would right mouse the icon and choose preferences. Not sure it's possible to remove the Places menu item in the GNOME menu.

I stand corrected.

I was thinking there would be a script of some sort or a config file (or something/anything -- not completely sure what type of file it would be), which I could edit.
I mean, there HAS to be some type of file telling it to show those two entries, right?

Regardless, the fact that I was looking for something regarding the Mint Menu lead me to nada.
I'll search around for stuff regarding the Gnome Menu.
Thanks for pointing that distinction out.
