I know, that there is bunch of threads and blog posts dealing with this topic, but none of them could help me out with my attempts to remove the folder of the "Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client" from my start menu.
I am currently using Lubuntu 14.04 and have to use the aforementioned client (please don't ask). In the start menu, there is the default folder "Internet", which contains some shortcuts to browser and so on as usual, as well as the subfolder "Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client", which contains only the shortcut to the actual "Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client".
Obviously, it is annoying to have a subfolder with only one shortcut and I want to get rid of it. But I can't find the location that points to this subfolder!
It is not
/usr/share/lubuntu/openbox/menu.xml ~/.local/share/lubuntu/openbox/menu.xml /etc/xdg/lubuntu/menus/lxde-applications.menu /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu
as pointed out here, and also not
/etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu ~/.config/menus/lxde-applications.menu ~/.local/share/desktop-directories
as pointed out here.
I have found the according
.directory file at
/usr/share/desktop-directories/cisco-anyconnect.directory and the according
.desktop file at
/usr/share/applications/cisco-anyconnect.desktop, but simply deleting the
.directory file does not work, the folder stays in place (I did a
lxpanelctl restart after every change).
Any further ideas are highly appreciated.
EDIT @DK Bose: This is another point that bothers me, this line is missing. Here is the full content:
