Can I remove them (or just one of them)?

Best Answer

  • It is normal, both desktop files are installed with it:

    $ dpkg -S desktop | grep imagemagick
    imagemagick: /usr/share/applications/display-im6.desktop
    imagemagick-6.q16: /usr/share/applications/display-im6.q16.desktop

    Two options here:

    • If you do not need ImageMagick you may remove its packages with
      sudo apt-get purge imagemagick imagemagick-6.q16
      (but it may remove essential packages from system such as CUPS)
    • Try to hide icons with alacarte (easy GNOME menu editing tool).
