Delete gnome launcher


I accidentally created a launcher in my Gnome Top Menu Panel

http://i39.tinypic.com/2va1onq.png

I can't find any dialog or way to delete it from the Top Menu Panel. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

In the terminal type:
Code:
gnome-control-center
then look for main menu, there you can edit your menus.

Now if you just want to edit the panel then right click over it or its components.

Regards

You need the package "alacarte" to have that option.

When I try to install alacarte I get


[user@user-fedora ~]$ sudo yum install alacarte
[sudo] password for user:
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
google-chrome | 951 B 00:00
google-chrome/primary | 1.5 kB 00:00
updates/metalink | 14 kB 00:00

updates/primary_db | 5.2 MB 00:41
google-chrome 3/3
Setting up Install Process
Package alacarte-0.13.2-3.fc15.noarch already installed and latest version
Nothing to do


perhaps I need to pass some args or something to 'gnome-control-center'?

Sorry to be so dense, when I run alacarte, I'm presented with a gui application. But I'm not seeing an interface where I can delete this launcher?
