The pointlessness of gnuCash

Restoring the KRDC menu

Posted 03-12-2009 at 10:32 AM by drask

The company I work for is a windows shop. Since I'm a Linux guy and telecommute most of the time, I rely on KVpnc and KRDC to connect to my remote desktop when I need to work with company Windows Only applications.

I recently had a problem with KRDC version 3.93 in OpenSuSE 10.3. When I first started it up, I was playing with the menu options and either clicked on "Settings->Show Menu Bar" or typed CTRL-M to see what would happen. What happened was my main menu disappeared,...
