Using 11.04 I uninstalled Banshee from the Software Center, restarted the system but still it's visible in the sound menu. How can I get rid of it?
You could try to remove it and blacklist it in Dconf.
dconf-editorfrom Terminal or using Alt+F2
- In the left menu, select apps>indicators>sound
- You should see
interested-media-players. Remove it: set the key to
(or keep just players you are interested in)
- To make things future-proof, you can add Banshee to
The result should look like this:
The values for applications that show up in the sound indicator are found in a dconf entry. To remove them:
- install dconf-tools
- open dconf-editor
- edit the entry "interested-media-players" and remove banshee
Check under .cache/indicators/ for a "sound" folder, delete it if it is there and log out/in.
Or, if you want some adventure, u can erase on synaptic ubuntu-desktop package. The only problem u might face with is that the sound ibcon will disappear too. It's a risc, but for me, as i use alsamixer for sound control, i don't need ubuntu-desktop. So, i do not know if it is your case though.
