I do not know the app. If you cannot remove the app in software center or via sudo apt-get remove <feedreader> you have to remove the files manually.

Next is just for the icon / entry in application menu:

Probably you have a feedreader.desktop file either in /usr/share/applications or in ~/.local/share/applications.

If you delete the file(s) the entry will disappear.

If you want to delete the icon from disk, you should open the feedreader.deskop file. There you will find a line Icon=/path/to/icon. Delete the icon file. I would not recommend to delete the icon because it seems to be a universal used icon for RSS programs.

  • Thank you friend . I don't know weather i removed whole file and repository from my system or not. But thank you for the help . I removed the file from Terminal . now the icon is no longer issue. Feb 4, 2016 at 17:20
