I installed a new Gnome-14.10 and restored my own system (same version14.10) using tar -xvzpf but since then, there are two identical icons for one app in the gnome dash:


How to fix this?


You can install a menu editor to fix it

sudo apt-get install menulibre

To edit the duplicated menu icon

Or you can just type

sudo -i 
nautilus -w /usr/share/applications

To see all the desktop files for menu items, and remove any duplicates, but it would be sensible to make a backup before changing any file.
