I recently installed the LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 meta package via the Ubuntu Software Center. This does not contain LibreOffice Base, so I installed it separately via the Ubuntu Software Center as well.
Doing so created two icons on my Unity dock: one for the main program and one for Base. I cannot remove the icon for Base. Whenever I right click on the icon, it gives me three options: New Database (this is normal and works as expected), a blank space that does nothing when clicked, and Lock to Launcher which does nothing when clicked.
How can I remove this icon for Base from the launcher? I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I tried to add a picture of exactly what I see, but I'm considered a new user. The system wouldn't let me, and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to upload it somewhere else and link to it.
