To be honest 'find $HOME -iname 'livecode*.desktop'' didn't list much, 
so I took the quick-n-dirty route
of deleting the folders from within /Home/.runrev/components/ . . .

and then manually deleting .desktop files the in 
/Home/.local/share/application folder.

The most useful information was pointing out the .local folder to me!
