Programs in Menu


Hi

I did many update and installation while logged as user using Mandrake Control Center / drake rpm and now none of them appear in my menu. If I run Menudrake, (either as root or user) I see all the new programs and stuff and even if I press save, nothing changes in my actual menu....
Is there something i am missing or anything ???
Also, since I have done those upgrade and Switched to GDM (was on KDM before) my totem media player does not open anymore, it crash when i initialize it, but my XMMS now works ???

Sorry if anyone just ask similar question, plz refer to the thread

What version of Mandrake are you using? Try running "update-menus" in a terminal.

I try
but it is more of a reaaly newbie problem called panic for nothing, yes there is more section in drakemenu, but no applications in them, since they are not defined, they wont be shown.

but thanks for this advice because i had same problem when i installed firefox, i had to create a new user account in order to have it in my menu
