Question Created Desktop Launcher .desktop.TS4WNY?


I created a desktop launcher for tilda. The command I used was I browsed to /usr/bin/tilda. It then created the tilda launcher and in addition tilda.desktop.TS4WNY launcher which does nothing. It has a lock on it and an X. I was able to delete the tilda launcher but not this TS4WNY. How do I remove it?

show up in
Code:
ls -lF ~/.local/share/applications/
and if it does, is it owned by root?

I rebooted and that solved the problem.

But would there have been another way of removing it without rebooting?

Unknown. It may have been there lingering and the reboot corrected it.

Typically the X would indicate the filesystem is telling you "This is not yours".
Next step would have been look for files not owned by you in your $HOME directory.

Glad it worked out.
