Shotwell removed but still appears in menu


Tahir: I removed Shotwell some time ago, bit it still appeaars in the Graphics menu, though it cannot be run. It does not appear in the main menu or menu editor. Harmless, bit it annoys me to have a "phanton" application.

That's odd -

If you removed the application with root privileges it shouldn't still be present in your menu.

Try removing it again and reboot right away. If that doesn't work.....look in Synaptic, does Shotwell show there?

What Window Manager/Desktop Environment are you using? If you are using a window manager, such as Fluxbox, you may need to edit the menu manually. If I recall, the LXDE menu also needs to be edited manually unless a menu plugin is installed.

It does not show in Synaptic, and any attempt to run it emnds with "fails to execute child process", so it is definniely not present, but still showing in the menu for some reason. I have even tried installing Shotwell again and then removing it, but the melody lingers on, as they say.

Xubuntu comes with XFCE according to my Google Search-
