    On my main account I tried the following Terminal command

    Which is supposed to clear everything out of the launchpad. It did not work. It removed a couple of apps so now I have one app on page one and the rest on page 2 and 3.

    Anyway, I thought I'd check it out in my testing account and lo and behold it worked perfectly. So now I am perplexed. I tried making myself an Admin in my main account in case that was the problem but that did not work either.

    So I know the above Terminal command works but for some reason it's having no effect in my main account. What could be the reason.

    Why don't you take a peek as to what is still in the tables with a select command?
