Every time Xcode's launcher opens, I see the icon of a project that has been deleted for ages. I double click it, then the error message appears saying it's no longer in my system, but the icon continues to show up in the launcher.

I've already tried:

rm -rf ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/*

Any ideas?

When Xcode opens, by default, it shows the Welcome to Xcode window upon which there is a list of recent projects one can select to open. To clear this list click: File > Open Recent > Clear Menu

You can disable all the recent projects in system preferences > general and change the number of recent items to 0. Every time you open xcode now no recent projects will show up.
