Duplicate apps upon installing MATE on LM14 Cinnamon Ed.

Duplicate apps upon installing MATE on LM14 Cinnamon Ed.

Postby andrepd on Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:26 am

I've installed MATE on a LM14 Cinnamon, and now I have several duplicate apps: 2 archive managers, 2 calculators, gedit and pluma Text Editor, etc. Is there anything I can do to correct this? For example, only show the Cinnamon specific apps in Cinnamon and the MATE ones in MATE?

BTW I've installed MATE using

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install mint-meta-mate

Duplicate entries in Linux is pretty standard and annoying. Here's a solution that should work:

1h. Icons duplicated?
I had this happening after logging into MATE and back into Gnome Shell, most application icons had both their Mint-X theme icons and their inherited Gnome icons visible. To undo this, install the for some reason no longer included by default program "Main Menu" (aka alacarte):

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alacarte


And untick away. In my case deleting all "Debian" subfolders did the trick. You must uncheck from the lowest level up, so expand all folders and uncheck upwards.

Also it is said that removing the "/var/lib/menu-xdg/applications/menu-xdg directory" will work as well.

Thanks, installing Main Menu did the trick.
