whisker menu shows "chromium apps"

Post by TJMcK » Fri Jul 20, 2018 12:46 am

I just installed LM19 xfce about a week ago.
I use Whisker Menu in my panel.
I notice that there is a menu category "Chromium Apps".
There is only one item in this category (Google Keep). When I click on it nothing happens. In fact, this app isn't installed on my Chromium.
And I'm a little confused as to why this category exists because, as far as I know Chrome apps are no longer available.

How do I get rid of this category? (And why is it there?)

you can also look in .local/share/applications/ and delete any chrome apps you find there. this will also make your chrome menu category gone.
