I need to remove/disable a js file which is loaded in page.xml, within the block <block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">, but just for "Grouped" products.

The file name is jquery-ui-1.8.23.custom.min.js and I tried to disable it by adding:

<action method="removeItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/jquery-ui-1.8.23.custom.min.js</name></action> 

Inside: <PRODUCT_TYPE_grouped translate="label" module="catalog"> in catalog.xml file. This didn't worked. How can I achieve this?. I've already tried to disable this js file by adding a script in view.phtml file, but didn't work neither.

Thanks for your help

Add the following snippet of XML to the local.xml of the active template/package in your shop. This way you are sure the removeItem method is called after all addItem calls

   <reference name="head">
      <action method="removeItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/jquery-ui-1.8.23.custom.min.js</name></action>
