Was checking my system for odd things, and came across the following:
Dash Home -> Installed shows an generic icon with the text: LibreOffice 3.5 Math.
This was strange, because I am running: LO 188.8.131.52. on Ubuntu 12.04.
The icon LibreOffice 3.6 Math did not show. It does run from the Suite, however.
After some looking into it, I found that under /opt, there was still a folder with the name: libreoffice3.5.
- sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
- sudo apt-get autoremove
- sudo apt-get remove
- sudo apt-get update
- sudo apt-get clean
None of the above removed the folder, and the generic icon.
So, I ran: sudo nautilus, and removed it manually.
Interesting result: nothing changed. The icon was still there.
After some research on the internet, Ask Ubuntu gave a potential solution, being: unity --reset. I logged in under gnome, and in the terminal I typed: unity --reset. It did not do what I expected, because it appeared to be hanging. After 10 minutes I killed the process.
Ok, me thinking simple. Re-install the LO 3.5 version, and remove it again. Hopefully that works, so I re-installed LO 3.5.7.
After the installation, the Dash Home -> Installed showed a proper icon for the LO 3.5 Math, and it also worked.
Ok, now, remove it again, using the same list as above, starting with purging.
Big . EVERYTHING IS THE SAME AS BEFORE.
The generic icon is back.
Me not understand anymore.
Can anyone shed some light on this one?
