(Solved) Uninstalled program shortcut still shows in main menu

Post by ukdp » Sat Feb 24, 2018 7:00 pm

Hi i am using Mint 18.3 xfce.
I installed world of warships using wine but it would not run so uninstalled the program i also uninstalled wine but still have a shortcut for world of warships in the main menu under the games catagory.
I thought i would be able to delete it using delete in the menu editor but the shortcut is not showing in the menu editor.
Would someone please tell me how i can get rid of the shortcut.
Thanks in advance for any help.
David

go to thunar and your home folder click on view and select show hidden files. then look for the .wine folder go to drive c and look for a folder with world of warships delete that file/folder if it exists.

I think the wine menu items are in
~/.config/menus/applications-merged

Hi thanks for the help i found the file deleted it and the item no longer shows in the main menu.
I found the file by pressing Ctrl + H then goto Home/pc name/local/share/applications.
Thanks again.
David
