怎样从LaunchPad里删除图标

一般情况下,当一个应用被删除,其相应的图标也就从LaunchPad里面被移除了。但是也有一些个别情况。

拿我自己的一个例子来说,很久以前我安装了Chrome浏览器然后删掉了它。可能是我当时删除的方法不当,总之在我再一次安装Chrome浏览器之后我发现所有的Chrome应用的图标都有两个,比如Gmail,Google Search还有Google Drive。就在我打开chrome://apps并且删掉了里面所有的应用之后发现还有每一个应用依然还留有一个图标时,我意识到剩下的这些图标其实是指向我很久以前安装的那一次Chrome里面的应用的。

为了删除这些多余的图标,我尝试了网上提供的很多方法,但是都没有起作用。直到我发现文章中提到的跟这些图标相关的文件全部都拥有一个共同的后缀名“.db“。这说明这些图标相关的信息应该是存在一个数据库中,同时也就意味着我们应该可以通过直接修改数据库的条目来删除这些多余的图标。

继续在网上搜查资料,我发现了一篇文章提到了这个数据库文件的位置以及向它传递SQL语句的命令。

sqlite3 $(sudo find /private/var/folders -name com.apple.dock.launchpad)/db/db "DELETE FROM apps WHERE title='APP_NAME_CASE_SENSITIVE';" && killall Dock

这个命令通过内置的SQLite3来链接数据库文件并且为其传递SQL语句以修改数据库。执行完这个命令之后。关掉Dock进程,静静等待其重启。再次打开LaunchPad,那些烦人的图标终于不见了。

不过根据提供这个命令的作者所说,这个命令似乎只适用于Yosemite系统,关于这一点我并没有验证。

希望这篇文章可以帮助到像我一样遇到类似问题的你。
