I have annoying issue with YouTube webapp, which I installed in 13.04. In 13.10 I noticed it don't work, so I remove the package with Software Center (unity-webapps-youtube), but the icon is still on list in the dash, and when I click the sound button, YouTube is still there. YouTube is still launching when I press those buttons. Even after few reboots, and reinstalling this webapp problem remains. Any solution?

After you uninstalled unity-webapps-youtube youhave to remove manually YouTubeyoutubecom.desktop from this directories: ~/.local/share/applications/ and /usr/share/applications. To do this you can use the following commands:

rm /home/radu/.local/share/applications/YouTubeyoutubecom.desktop
sudo rm /usr/share/applications/YouTubeyoutubecom.desktop

After this, YouTube webapp will not appear anymore in Dash (even if unity-webapps-youtube is installed).
