Arrow Wine menu troubles with xfce on Xubuntu 6.06

I've installed some software with wine and those didn't work properly. I uninstalled them but now I got stuck with their shortcuts in my wine menu. I just can't get rid of it. First I tried to uninstall wine and reinstall it. Didn't work. So I found there was a .wine hidden directory in my /home/%username%/ directory. I deleted it, uninstalled et reinstalled wine but didn't work. I did a
cd / && sudo locate -u && locate wine
in the terminal. There was a lot of files. I deleted them all after uninstalling wine. I reinstalled wine and the shortcuts were still there!! Where the heck are they located? Does anyone know?

I had the same problem, I found them someplace in /usr/share. It was either themes, icons, or some of the xfce folders.

You will find launchers created by wine in ~/.local/share/applications, ~/.kde/share/applnk/Wine and ~/.gnome/apps/Wine. I think XFCE will read from any of these locations. I have been using Xubuntu Dapper and had exactly the same problem.

If you want to add anything to the menu just create a launcher in ~/.local/share with the categories you want it to appear under in the menu.

I hope this isn't too late to be of any use.
