I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.
I've installed Krita and VLC via the Ubuntu Software store (among other apps). I have enabled multiple repositories as sources for the store.
Krita and VLC are both listed twice in my Dash: once with the appropriate icon from my current theme (Numix), and once with the app's default icon. I'll use Krita as an example for the rest of this post:
No matter which icon I click, the app launches as expected. However, I see different things if I right-click each icon and click "Show Details". If I do this for the Krita icon that matches my system theme, it takes me to a listing for Krita in the software store, sourced from
ubuntu-bionic-universe. If I do this on the default-icon version, it searches the store for
krita_krita and takes me to a version sourced from
I've looked through my
/usr/share/applications folder and reviewed all the entries for Krita in there. There appear to be no duplicates, and only one (
org.kde.krita.desktop) that does not have the
NoDisplay flag set to
true. I also checked out
./local/share/applications to see if there were any entries in there, but that directory contains 0 items.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Krita, to no effect. I also tried rebooting the computer, which also did nothing.
Could having multiple repositories enabled be causing these duplicate listings in my Dash? And how can I remove those extraneous listings?
