Problem with menus in Mandriva 2010.0

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

 

I am a very organized person, so I don like having a mess of entries in Mandriva's main menu. That is why I always edit it. I categorize everything and move entries and submenus from place t place. Has anyone noticed a problem with Mandriva's menus? I've been having this since mandriva 2008 (or even before, I don't remember). Has anyone noticed that moving entries or changing submenus messes the whole menu? Is there a way to solve this?

What do you mean by messes the whole menu? I do similar things with the menus as well moving things about, etc.

 

What are you changing exactly?

I move elements from one submenu to another. For example I don't like it that text editors are placed under Tools, so I group them under a submenu I create myself and then I move it to the development menu. After doing that or similar operations some submenus go blank (everything within them disappears) or if I change the name of a submenu that comes with the default configuration, then another submenu with the previous name appears. For example: I change Internet to something else, then another internet menu appears.

 

Also, sometimes a submenu that I made by mistake just won't go away when I delete it.

I had problems before when some items wouldn't delete. I usually just remove the tick against the menu or application so that I never see it again.

In KDE some menus lose their content if you edit them.

 

I have found that in GNOME you can do whatever you want provided you don't delete the existing categories. Also, you shouldn't remove items from GNOME, because they will be lost in KDE's menu. Guess I'll have to create a user for each desktop environment if I want to keep things organized in each menu.

 

Also, for some reason I see that items that disapear on their own are still present, it's just that they don't appear in the menu. If you write the missing program's name in the Kmenu or in the windows that comes out when you press alt+f2, you will see it there. I didn't know that, so I went and re-created the submenus that went blank after meddling with the KDE Menu editor. Now I see two entries for Kalarm, Konsole and other programs. Does anybody know how to remove that duplicate entry?
