How can I remove Whisker menu items?

In Porteus v3.2rc3 XFCE x86, I tried to activate Chrome before realizing that it is incompatible. I deleted the module, but an icon remains in the Whisker menu -- how can I get rid of it?

Does the desktop file still exist in /usr/share/applications ?

Code: Select all

xdg-desktop-menu uninstall /path/to/chromium.desktop
Then just delete the desktop file.

There was a file labelled Chrome in /usr/share/applications, but not ".desktop"; I had already attempted to delete files and I deleted the reference in /usr/share/applications.
