F29/Gnome: How to remove items from Applications Menu?

asked 2019-01-02 05:46:22 -0500

My Classic Shell Applications menu contains many unused entries, and I want to tidy it up. In Windows, this would be something like Right-Click->'Remove from this list' but for the life of me, I can't find a way to perform this trivial operation in Gnome.

You can use the good old alacarte for this, which should be in the repos, it is originally for GNOME 2, but it still does work. You can also use menulibre which is a more modern choice, and it is also in the repos.

Or you can use GNOME Appfolders Manager, but you have to compile it yourself-

Hmmn, alacarte has 'fixed' the issue by removing the Applications Menu function completely. Classic Shell is no longer an option at the login screen either. In 'LookingGlass' I see the following error for the Application Menu GLib.MarkupError: Error on Line 1 Char 1: Document was empty or contained only whitespace

I've now removed alacarte, but the damage has been done. I have no idea how to recover from this...
