Smile Fedora 15 Applications overview


I installed one week ago Fedora 15. I am very satisfied, but I did one thing that I think it was not suppose to do. I use google chrome as my default browser, and i installed from webstore some Apps, and i did the stupidity to create a shortcut in Applications overview also, because i made on the Desktop also, but it was very easy to remove. And now i cannot remove those icons that there are left there. I was in /usr/share/applications but there are only icons that you install through Add/Remove software or different ways.
So how do i remove those useless icons that i installed through google chrome from Applications overview?

Thank you for your time and for your help

Hello willockss, welcome to LQ,

are you using Gnome 3 as your desktop-environment?

Well, the problem is that Gnome3 is very new, few people are using it yet. I'd recommend to read in the documentation. For example here: http://ubuntumanual.org/node/280

Good luck

Thanks but I already did. Fedora have a better documentation about Gnome 3, and is nothing about this kind of situation.

But thank you so much for your time and for the effort

btw, surely Gnome 3 has bugs since it is very new, it may therefore be that your issue is related to a bug instead of a missconfiguration.
I remember the early days of KDE-4 some years ago, there were many bugs.
But since Gnome 3 is still in its testing-phase, if you find a bug, post it to the developers, and if you find a solution for your problem which is not yet described in the documentation, feel free to support Gnomes documentation, look here: http://www.gnome.org/get-involved/
