I have had problems associated Adobe PDF reader in Ubuntu for a long time. Any time I have needed to open a PDF for example in firefox or a downloaded PDF i have to manually open the file after opening Adobe PDF reader. I recently un-installed Adobe PDF reader today trying to fix this issue planning on re-installing it later and noticed that there is an app in the system menu called adobe pdf reader 9 still lingering when i did a search for adobe. when I tried to launch the app after un-installing it it gave me an error message failed to launch child process and is looking in my download directory.
Does anyone know how to remove this bogus link from my system menu, i think it may be causing the file association problems.
