I have uninstalled unity-webapps-facebookmessenger but I have left over launcher icons in the dash and message menu. I have removed the facebook.com entry from allowed webapps domains in dconf-editor.

How can I get rid of this annoying facebook icon in my message menu?

  • Have you right clicked on it and selected "Unlock from Launcher"? – Seth Jan 15 '13 at 0:19
  • Hi, its not on the launcher, its in the dash, but the annoying part is the message menu – Jeff Jan 15 '13 at 0:19

  • Yes, have already uninstalled it. Thats the problem really. – Jeff Jan 15 '13 at 0:23
  • So you used the Software Center or D-conf? – Seth Jan 15 '13 at 0:24

Apparently when you uninstall the webapp package from Software Center it doesn't delete the icons. So you just need to go to "~/.local/share/applications" and delete the file for facebook "facebookfacebookcom.desktop" or any other webapp.
