How can I remove the Wolfram Mathematica menu from the Xfce applications menu? The Mathematica menu doesn't show up in alacarte... I'm using Xubuntu 12.10 64-bit.

I solved the problem by running

sudo xdg-desktop-menu uninstall wolfram-all.directory wolfram-mathematica8.desktop

Note: Make sure to save the wolfram-mathematica8.desktop somewhere just in case so you can put it back in the /usr/share/applications/ folder.

  • In case you don't get a better answer, come back and accept your own. If a better one does come along, you can always un-accept one and accept the other. – user25656 Feb 21 '13 at 3:11
  • @vasa1 I am unable to accept my answer now because it hasn't been two days since I posted this question – functionptr Feb 21 '13 at 22:23
