I attempted to install Calibre on Ubuntu 16.04, but the installation failed partway through. Following the installation instructions I was able to successfully complete the installation, but an icon with the interrupted installation process was left on the screen. I then completely uninstalled Calibre, but the icon is still there! How do I get rid of it?


Could be it's located in /usr/share/applications/theprogramname.desktop

    Welcome to Super User, and thanks for trying to help with this question. Just FYI, when you get a little more rep, a helpful, speculative suggestion like this would be better as a comment. Answer posts are intended for definitive solutions. I went ahead and copied this to a comment for you so it isn't lost if this gets deleted as a "non-answer". The system put this in a review queue, so it will get some scrutiny. You might want to delete this yourself so it doesn't attract downvotes. If the OP confirms it, post it again as an answer. – fixer1234 Apr 4 '17 at 16:49
