I accidentally selected "terminal" instead of "background" in dmenu when I launched a GUI applications. Now, every time I launch the app I get an unwanted terminal. How do I reset the dmenu preference?


Inside ~/.config/dmenu-recent there are two text files called background and terminal. Edit the appropriate one in a text editor, and delete the line with your app's name. This will reset the dmenu app preference.
