Hi first of all thanks to all responsible for the new Lite 2.0 have been using it since it first came available for download as yet no major problems.
I have been having trouble uninstalling Libre Office suite once i have done the uninstall i am left with the icons in the office menu,
Clicking the icons do nothing as the software is no longer there i would just like to delete the icons as well as the software.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Any Menu item that we modify the name of stays after an uninstall. Try Menu, Settings, Main Menu. Office, then untick any entries there for LibreOffice.

Ive had the same issue.  After remoiving libre office and replacing with another office suite, the libre icons still remain.  I followed this example to remove the icons and it didnt work.  The icons are still there.  Is there another way to remove the icons?

Some desktop files are in
/home/yourusername/.local/share/applications
and
/etc/skel/.local/share/applications
You can rename or remove them them.
