Thumbs down No Alacarte for SUSE Gnome users?


I'm on SUSE 10.1 and I want to edit the applications (main) menu.

It has an "edit menu" option when right-clicking the root menu, however, all that allows is for unchecking menu entries to disallow or allow them to show.

I had been using Ubuntu until I ran into an ATI driver issue... and Ubuntu used Alacarte to edit Gnome menus.

SUSE doesn't have it installed... I've checked YUM and YaST repositories... they don't have it.

SUSE has Gnome 2.12.2 installed... supposedly there are no upgrades available via YaST/YUM.

Gnome says 2.14 is latest stable.

The Alacarte project page won't even allow a download of the source, saying Alacarte is included with Gnome after version 2.16, but for right now.... what?

I guess SUSE users using Gnome are screwed.

KDE it is?

This is bothersome.

SUSE is still evaluating their upgrade to the latest stable GNOME. While Alacarte isn't available, have you tried searching for gnome-menu-editor?

Also, what ATI driver issue did you have? I'm just curious...

I don't see any package out there like that other than gnome-menus which is installed... i can call the program gnome-menu-spec-test which seems to spit out a file of some sort.

My ATI issue with Ubuntu... I have a Viz series card... FireGL V3400... only Redhat and SUSE are supported by ATI, and only rpms were given... I took the source from the source rpm and compiled it and ran ati-config, but the display would just blank out and I couldn't Ctrl+Backspace out or anything, required reboot.

Ubuntu loaded the generic drivers by default, no hardware accel.

The card and real drivers work fine with SUSE.

That's odd that gnome-menu-editor wasn't included... I'll dig around for you on that one... it makes me curious enough to do so.

Regarding the ATI drivers and Ubuntu, did you try the instructions at http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubu...allation_Guide?

Ah.. thanks for the link, I hadn't seen that method.

I'll have to give that a try when I can.

Thanks for your help.
