How can I remove un-installed Wine programs from the Unity dash menu?

Sorry if this has already been asked. I installed a couple of apps with Wine, which I un- and then re-installed, but they still appear in the Unity dash. How can I remove them?

Use alacarte to edit the menus or delete the relevant .desktop files from ~/.local/share/applications.

Thanks, but which .desktop files are which? Will alacarte give them the proper names? Which ones do I need? –  dragon Nov 19 '11 at 23:32
    
the .desktop files that are named according to the applications you removed in wine. –  RolandiXor Nov 20 '11 at 1:13
    
Alacarte didn't work, but I deleted the relevant files from ~/.local/share/applications. I also removed the files from the wine folder in ~/.local/share/applications, was that right? –  dragon Nov 20 '11 at 19:01
    
@dragon it wasn't necessary, but it's okay. –  RolandiXor Nov 20 '11 at 21:24
