I had troubles unistalling oracle java but finally i did it (don't know how) but still the oracle java options are appearing in the dash home like Oracle java console and so on. I'd like to remove them because i don't really have the oracle java installed anymore (i check in synaptics software manager). I'm using 12.04.1 (Ubuntu version).

Two possible solutions :

  • Drag those Java Oracle options into the Trash of the Launcher (and empty the trash of course).
  • Find the .desktop file related to it (probably in /usr/share/applications/ or in ~/.local/share/applications/) and delete the file.
