Web apps are great when you have WIFI or ADSL with no Internet cap. However, in South Africa Internet of this kind is not cheap, so few people have it. I am currently one of them.
I don't use Web Apps on Peppermint. I installed Claws mail, Gpaint, VLC, etc. and don't want all the shortcuts in the Menu.
Navigate to the folder:
Run PCManFm and go to
/home/tienie/.local/share/applications (replace tienie with your username)
remember that to view the .local folder you will have to click on View > "Show hidden"
and delete the shortcuts you no longer want to have.
The change is almost immediate and your Menu is a lot neater having less unused icons.
I have not figured out how to move icons from one section of the Menu to the other, if anyone has any hints please post them in the comments below, thanks.
