two software manager icons in solydx [SOLVED]

Postby plaircpa » 10 Nov 2014 19:06

After the October update, I see two software manager icons in Solydx HE. How do I remove the old one that no longer works from the menu?

The software manager has changed names so there are two now and likely both are installed. To verify, enter these commands into a terminal:

Code: Select all

apt policy softwaremanager
apt policy solydxk-softwaremanager
If these commands show that both managers are installed then enter this into a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge softwaremanager

Code: Select all

$ apt policy softwaremanager
softwaremanager:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 7.6.6
  Version table:
     7.6.6 0
        500 http://home.solydxk.com/production/ solydxk/main amd64 Packages

$ apt policy solydxk-softwaremanager
solydxk-softwaremanager:
  Installed: 7.6.6-1
  Candidate: 7.6.6-1
  Version table:

Just the new one is installed, but the menu icon is still there for the old.

I have no explanation as to why. One possible option to get rid of it is to install alacarte menu editor and disable or delete it from there.

Code: Select all

apt-get install alacarte

Thanks for the tip on alacarte.
I can't seem to find the old manager in there though. I see the new one under Settings and System. I see the old one and the new one under All and if I do a search for software. So I still can't figure out how to get rid of the old one.

Me too.
However I managed to use alacarte (main-menu) to un-tick all entries of software-manager and now only one appears.

Same here, but the one that still exists does not function since its the old softwaremanager.

Think I got it. I found a softwaremanager.desktop file in my ~/.local/share/applications directory. Moved that out and the duplicate is gone.
