View Full Version : [ubuntu] alacarte broken

September 7th, 2008, 10:27 PM
No matter what I do, alacarte wont let me delete items from the menu. I have about 50 items in my applications>other menu, mostly stuff that wine put there, and the best that I can do is deselect the "show" button to hide them, but right clicking them and selecting delete does absolutely nothing. I tried getting rid of them by going into ~/.local/share/applications, but when I deleted some of them there, they still show up in alacarte, and a lot of the other menu items aren't present in that directory, while others have multiple instances of the same file. This brings me to another point, how can there be several instances of the same filename in the same directory? Is nautilus lying to me or something?
