When I search in applications of Gnome for Chrome, I get two entries: the left one in the picture is OK with a high resolution icon, the right one has a low resolution icon.

I couldn't figure out where the second one is coming from. Does anyone have an idea?

I would like to remove it.

My guess is that the second icon comes from the google-chrome.desktop file in .local/share/applications.

I would suggest you remove the file and retry again.


Install alacarte to manually edit gnome menus. You can uncheck that icon and it wont show up again
