    problems deleting software ran in wine

    i posted a problem similar to this a few months ago but it wasn't able to be answered but now this problem is getting very annoying. when i delete software that i was running in wine for some reason the shortcuts remain. i've tried going to to .config ---> application mergered and delete the files but it doesn't work. i've also tried going to main menu and deleting the shortcut but that also doesn't work when i press delete nothing happens. does anyone else have this problem or know how to solve it?

    Have a look at the following locations which all have items put in them by WINE:-

    /home/yourname/.config/menus/applications-merged
    /home/yourname/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs
    /home/yourname/.local/share/desktop-directories
    /home/yourname/.local/share/icons

    aha,i just delete the file under the path "/home/zpx/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs" and then OK

    my history:

    423 cd .config/
    424 ls
    425 cd menus/
    426 ls
    427 cd applications-merged/
    428 ls
    429 grep "wine" -l *
    430 vim applications.menu
    and the icon is still in my menu:

    436 cd ../.local/share/applications/
    437 ls
    438 rm wine-Programs-*

    and the icon is still:

    457 cd .local/share/
    458 ls
    459 cd applications/
    460 ls
    461 cd wine/
    462 ls
    463 cd Programs/
    464 ls
    and then
    468 rm AutoHotkey/ -rf
    469 rm CMake\ 2.6/ -r

    it's ok

    is my english poor enough?
