I have uninstalled shotwell (and even rebooted) but I still see an entry in the Main Menu… should that launcher have been removed by the uninstaller? Other apps launchers are removed after I uninstall them.
How did you uninstall it?
You could look for a .desktop file somewhere. I’d try first in your home directory since it’ll be much faster:
find $HOME -iname *shotwell*.desktop -print
then try in the whole system:
find / -iname *shotwell*.desktop -print
I’ve reproduced this on 16.04 LTS using
sudo apt remove shotwell. (I did see pending updates, including for shotwell, but didn’t bother working around the perennial /boot full issue to apply them.)
Thanks @elcste for the input. The following files turn up after uninstalling:
[email protected]:~$ sudo find / -iname *shotwell*.desktop -print [sudo] password for lar: /usr/share/applications/shotwell-viewer.desktop /usr/share/applications/shotwell.desktop /usr/share/app-install/desktop/shotwell-common:shotwell-viewer.desktop /usr/share/app-install/desktop/shotwell-common:shotwell.desktop find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied
Here is some relevant system info:

It looks like those .desktop files should be part of the
shotwell-common package in xenial, so you can try to uninstall the
You also could type in “mozo” into the terminal and change it manually
Yup, @elcste the
shotwell-common package is indeed still present after uninstalling
shotwell. Seems like it should be marked for removal, but it stays.
@Jaden_Joner using this approach revealed two relevant shortcuts in the main menu. Perhaps it’s by design - I wasn’t paying enough attention.
- Shotwell (
shotwell %U), still enabled
- Shotwell Viewer (
shotwell %f), disabled
(fwiw, I have a dedicated image to explore this now and should be able to respond faster)
