Three entries for Catfish in menu.[SOLVED]

Latest MX 18.3

There are three entries for Catfish in the menu, two of them are identical and one is named 'Run Catfish'. All three open Catfish.
I'll try to hunt down the unnecessary desktop files,but if anyone already knows which ones to delete I appreciate the tip.

TY

Here's an article I wrote on items you may wish to have...
https://eirenicon.org/knowledge-base/xf ... on-tricks/

To make changes simply open Thunar- Click Edit==>Configure Custom Actions (and make your changes) Be aware there are three Tabs on an edit pop-up.

Thanks for the reply, manyroads. It's useful as I was asking myself how it was really to edit Thunar custom actions. But the issue here are duplicate desktop files for Catfish that show twice in whiskermenu.

Best.

Edit. I see there are two desktop files for Catfish in /usr/share/applications

Edit2.

Code: Select all

$ ls -l|grep -i catfish
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  2221 May 25 20:15 catfish.desktop
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  7442 Feb  2 17:46 org.xfce.Catfish.desktop

it seems /usr/share/applications/catfish.desktop could be some leftover?

Code: Select all

$ dpkg -S org.xfce.Catfish.desktop 
catfish: /usr/share/applications/org.xfce.Catfish.desktop

Code: Select all

$ dpkg -S catfish.desktop 
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *catfish.desktop*

Whiskermenu 'stuff' shows up in one of two places normally:
For user installed items:
-- $User/.config/autostart
-- $User/.local/share/applications

for system-wide apps:
-- usr/share/applications

You might also check
-- /etc/skel/.config/autostart to see what's in there

Be advised messing with /etc or /usr requires privs & you can really mess things up. I am a expert at that (messing things up, that is) :bagoverhead:

Oh and :welcome:

there are two desktop files for catfish. I meant to remove the extra one from 18.3, but I missed it.

will fix for 19. for now, you can just remove one if the double entry bugs you.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /usr/share/applications/catfish.desktop
will do the trick.
