    Install and use Lxmed to control Menu: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxmed/.
    Otherwise, delete the desktop file associated with the application. Most desktop files are in /usr/share/applications. Lxmed is a java application and requires a good java to run.

    Sorry, but java is not installed, this is a really small thin client installation.
    Knows someone where can I find this menu file to delete some entries manually?

    i dont think deleting is the best way, because you can lose it as an option in places you need it, generally it is best to do the following:

    1. open the terminal and type
    Code:
    gksudo pcmanfm
    press the Enter key. this will open your file manager with root privileges, be careful.


    2. go to filesystem, locate /usr/share/applications


    3. right-click the chosen menu entry file, open with leafpad or whatever text editor is on Lubuntu.


    4. add this line to the end of the file
    Code:
    NoDisplay=true
    then save.
