Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I tried using methods found in different posts on this forum, but they do not work because my system tells me that that app is not installed.

Any help ?

EDIT: ** Just now i installed Ubuntu Vibes web app, and it points to a wrong page when clicked and now I can't remove it xD

What things have to tried? Can you give some links so we know where you're at? –  Seth Jan 14 '13 at 20:55
    
I tried searching for the app in software center. I tried using unsettings to disable the app. I tried dragging the icon to the trash can :) All with no luck. I tried typing random stuff in cmd to remove it ... –  mabasic Jan 14 '13 at 21:10
    
Please post back your orginal method of installation –  Ringtail Jan 14 '13 at 22:29
    
I went to www.omgubuntu.co.uk/some_page, then it asked me to allow something. I said yes, and voila i had omgubuntu installed on my pc. When i click on the icon i goes to a specific site on omgubuntu. I checked firefox add-ons, and omgubuntu is not there either. EDIT: Now when i click on the icon it does nothing. I think unsettings is guilty of that. –  mabasic Jan 14 '13 at 22:46
    
Okey ... now i used sqlite database browser to open databases found in ~/.local/share/unity-webapps/ and deleted entries for omgubuntu and ubuntu vibes and in folder resources deleted their icons. But they are still shown in dash. –  mabasic Jan 14 '13 at 23:48

I used sqlite database browser to open databases found in ~/.local/share/unity-webapps/ and deleted entries for omgubuntu and ubuntu vibes and in folder resources deleted their icons. Then I went to ~/.local/share/applications/ and deleted related *.desktop files. But they are still shown in dash so i restarted my PC and they are gone.

Hope this helps!

  1. Launch dconf-editor (You may need to install it from the Ubuntu Software Center).

  2. Go to com » canonical » unity » webapps.

  3. Edit the key allowed-domains and remove the occurrence omgubuntu.co.uk from the list.

  4. Remove any files containing omgubuntu.co.uk from ~/.local/share/applications/. From a terminal (you should be asked for confirmation):

    rm ~/.local/share/applications/*omgubuntu*.desktop

  5. For total cleanup, remove the icons from ~/.local/share/icons/unity-webapps/. From a terminal, again:

    find ~/.local/share/icons/unity-webapps/ -iname *omgubuntu*.png -exec rm {} ';'
