Thank you, xenopeek! I wanted to remove the launch icon of Adobe Reader because it didn't install properly. I tried running the .bin file but it would just ask me what application I wanted to open it in....then I tried running the .deb install, which took a long time and said it was complete, however it clearly wasn't installed properly as it wouldn't launch. I was able to delete the /opt/Adobe directory to remove that portion, however the launch icon remained. Your simple fix action worked... I feel stupid for not finding it (I googled for a bit).
The only problem I am having now is that I am having problems viewing some (not all) .pdf files from websites. I am using chrome and sometimes I get 'you need to upgrade adobe' messages. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
