Hello everybody,

Because mintinstall is hanging' as I do start it, I have decided to de-install it.
(re-installation mintinstall does not change this..)

:?: Does someone know how I get rid of the (Software Manager) icon?

Greetings,

Pengo

Run the following in your terminal ...

Code:
gedit ~/.config/lxpanel/Peppermint/panels/panel


About 1/4 of the way down find and remove ...

Code:
item {
            name=Software Manager
            image=/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/icon.svg
            action=gksu mintinstall
        }

Save your changes & exit gedit.

Menu item will dissappear when after you reboot.

After making the changes mac suggests, instead of rebooting you can apply the changes with:
Code:
lxpanelctl restart


=========================================================

another option would be instead of removing that section, change it to load the Synaptic Package Manager" instead .. by changing the section mac mentioned to:-
Code:
        item {
            name=Synaptic
            image=synaptic
            action=gksu synaptic
        }

There aren't any.

An applications menu position is defined by the "Categories" link in the applications .desktop file .. as laid down by the freedesktop specification:
http://standards.freedesktop.org/deskto ... atest.html

Try opening any of the files at either:

/usr/share/applications

or

~/.local/share/applications

in a text editor and see if you can make sense of the way the

Categories=

line works
