The removed snap apps are still in the KDE menu

Hi, as per the subject, I would like to remove uninstalled snap apps.
I don’t know if it’s about snap or KDE.

Thank you

Do this still persist even after a logout ??

Yes :man_shrugging: They are there even after many logouts and reboots

These entries will be due to .desktop files.

Typically, they are found using $XDG_DATA_DIRS which s a list of places the system looks for an applications directory containing these files.

Snapd (which manages your snaps) will place them in /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/ and add this /var/lib/snapd/desktop/ to $XDG_DATA_DIRS. So the first thing to check is if they’ve been removed from there.

If they have (which I expect), then something (not snapd) has created copies elsewhere at some point and snapd couldn’t know to remove those copies.

In the directories you mentioned there are no such ghost programs

Then your problem is not related to snapd. I hope you have better luck on the KDE forums!

The KDE forum didn’t help, you gave me an idea so I tinkered around a bit.
The files were in ~.local/share/applications/
I know it’s not related to snap, but I left the solution anyway.

Thanks for your support and good luck
