... the vlc is still showing in the multimedia button. How do I remove it from here? ...

If you mean Multimedia in the menu, go to Settings in menu then Main Menu then Multimedia and uncheck or delete VLC as above without messing with the terminal. If you are a newby like me you avoid the terminal as much as possible.  :D

First you can check if you really have removed it, does it start when you press the vlc logo in menu? Or when you open terminal,write vlc and press enter.

I usually use the terminal when removing software i dont want with the command lines:

" sudo apt-get remove vlc " or " sudo apt-get purge vlc " ( Do think the difference is that the last one also removes configuration files )

 But if not gone from the menu yet, you can go to " Settings -> Main Menu -> Multimedia " and remove it from the list.

Hi.  I had trouble with VLC so have replaced it with mplayer2 which works great for me.
I have removed all VLC associated bits with Synaptic but the vlc is still showing in the multimedia button.
How do I remove it from here?  Would have thought right click and remove but no.

Thanks in advance.
