Unhappy Adding items to kmenu in Fedora Core 2


I'm trying to add things to my kmenu in Fedora Core 2. Not even folders, just simple things like vi or a terminal. I can open the menu editor and add them fine, but once I close the editor and look at kmenu they don't show up.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

GR

Question

Yup, saved my changes, still no joy.

I can even go to the Control Center->Regional & Accessibility->KHotKeys, and I see my new entries there with the hotkeys I want under "Menu Editor Entries", but the hotkeys don't work and the items don't show up in the kmenu. I still have to either use the mouse or type four extra keystrokes to get vi.

try doing it as root. a lot of people have weird problems like this where root user functions better than regular user. perhaps theres a corrupt file under your /home/user directory thats causing a problem, but first check to see if root can change the menu.
