  • Try to remove all files associated with Chrome from ~/.local/share/applications.

The way I remove unwanted icons is use the program menulibre.

sudo apt-get install menulibre

That will give you a menu editor.

Open the Menu Editor and search for Chrome. Hide the icon and save your settings. Close and reopen the Application Bar and see if your duplicate is gone.
