Hi Richmond,

Assuming that you never install for "All Users", then you can try 
something like:

     find $HOME -iname 'livecode*.desktop'

to list all of the .desktop files that LiveCode installs to make itself 
appear in your menu system.

You can then manually delete the ones you no longer require.

(I haven't actually tried this so some fudging around may be needed in 
order to make it work).
