3.3. Removing Submenus for Individual Users

To remove the entire System Settings submenu for a user, use the <Deleted/> element in the user's $HOME/.config/menus/applications.menu file as shown:

<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"

<!-- File created by desktop-file-utils version 0.8 -->

<!-- Removes the System Settings submenu from the Applications menu-->

    <Name>System Settings</Name>

<!-- END of System Settings removal content -->


The other submenus of the Applications can be removed in similar fashion. Note that the name of the submenus can be determined from the files located in the /usr/share/desktop-directories/ directory.
