How to delete Apps and Files & Folder (lenses) icons from Launcher?

Is it possible to remove the "Deleted Items", "Applications" and/or "Files & Folders" entries on the unity dock (ubuntu 10.10 sidebar) if they are not needed? Repeating what is done for removing other launcher entries does not seem to work.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There doesn't appear to be a way to remove the Deleted Items (the trash can looking thing).

However removing the following two packages will remove the Applications and Files and Folders: sudo apt-get remove unity-place-applications unity-place-files

You will need to log out and back in for that to take effect.

Doing this messed up the Dash and Alt+F2 for me. Instead, run the command sudo gedit /usr/share/unity/places/*.place and edit the two files that open as described here. –  Mandy May 12 '11 at 21:33
