If you’re experiencing a rather annoying phenomenon of duplicate application menu entries in Gnome Shell, here’s how to fix it:

  • Install Alacarte Menu Editor by running “sudo apt-get install alacarte” (without the quotes)
  • Open Alacarte, it should be named Main Menu
  • Uncheck all boxes under Debian
  • Enjoy your lovely duplicate (and ugly-icon) free Gnome Shell application menu

Ahh, that's so much better


Hopefully others will benefit from this knowledge, and use it wisely =D

    This worked perfectly! Thank you

    Hmm, that’s interesting. Did you uncheck the individual applications themselves or just the folders? Unfortunately, Alacarte doesn’t let you uncheck all of the applications in a folder just by unchecking the folder. Let me know how that works.

Have something to say?
