Talking which file has the main menu entries


I want to edit the Main menu to regroup the applications, and change the paths of some of them.. I have done some yum install and remove, but the entries in the main menu are still present.

Any one? pl. help...

Hi and welcome to LQ.
It'd be useful to know which desktop environment you use.

Probably /usr/share/applications.

As sycamorex said, it would be useful to know what desktop environment you are using.
