This question already has an answer here:
I was browsing Launchpad and it asked to install a helper app. I thought that this was the Firefox extension so I said yes. Now I have this launcher app that will open a Firefox window directly to Launchpad from my unity dash.
I want to remove it and I can't. I removed the Firefox extension and it's still there. I removed the Unity webapps Firefox extension and it's still there. I tried to purge "launchpad" and my system says that it doesn't exist. I searched Launchpad for information on this app but found nothing I could understand that seemed to be relevant. But it's still there, staring at me from the Unity dash.
Can anyone help me get this thing out of my system? Running Ubuntu 13.10
I tried this question but it didn't work:
"Package 'unity-webapps-launchpad' is not installed, so not removed" and the Launchpad Firefox Launcher icon is STILL in the dash. Any other ideas?
