Originally posted by wardialer But, when It still in my K-Start Menu. And whn I click on it, it does not react. But how could I remove it from the K-Start Menu??? And is there a way to make sure if its deleted or not?
That's 'cause the K-menu has no way of knowing that the guarddog binary has been removed, it just is executing the command it's told to. To remove it from the KDE menu, right-click on the 'start' button and select 'menu editor', you should get a configuration editor. Navigate to guarddog and right-click on it and select delete.
Ideally if you've installed from a package, the best way is to remove the package itself. This will remove all the files and links that a package puts throughout the system. Usually this requires a single command, rather than hunting all over the system.
But is there a way to remove it from the /usr/shared/apps/guarddog
It's probably a directory and not a file. Do 'ls -al' in the /usr/share/apps dir. If the permissions are prefaced with a 'd' (and it's blue), then it's a dir. cd into the guarddog dir and remove all the files, then, go back to /usr/share/apps and remove the dir with rmdir. Short cut is: rm -rf /usr/share/apps/guarddog. Though you need to be careful with that command and make sure that you enter it properly otherswise you can hose enire portions of your filesystem.
cd /usr/share/apps (move to proper directory)
ls -al (list directory contents to make sure that guidedog and guarddog dir are there )
rm -rf /usr/share/guarddog (recursively remove directory it's contents)
rm -rf /usr/share/guidedog (same sh*t, different dir)
