I've tried hiding the cart button in the top header area with multiple xml commands in the local.xml file, but non work. I've tried <remove name="checkout_cart_link" /> nested under a <default> tag, as well as <reference name="top.links"> <remove name="checkout_cart_link" /> </reference>based off of THESE instructions.

I'd prefer to keep the edits in local.xml if possible. Also, we have a quote add-on installed (cart2quote).

Turns out it was just the incorrect reference and name. Correct ones are <reference name="header"> and <remove name="minicart_head">.

If anyone knows how to look up the reference names and block names, please share!
