KDE menu items disappeared! help please!


I've experienced this before when I've installed new software, and i can right click the K and simply go into menu editor and show all the folders in the menu again. Nuhu, not so this time. When I right click menu editor, nothing pops up to assist me. I'm stuck. Please help...

The only options I have to do when I click the k start menu are:
Recent Documents
Lock screen
logout "user"

Thanks for any help.

Now I changed menu types accidently and can't switch back to the "mandrake menu" I believe its the default KDE menu, and there is no option to select in menu editor to get it back. Any help?

run "menudrake" from the command line, there change the menu style.

BTW, i hate the mandrake menu (its all crapped up and new item adding is a pain), i recommend using the original KDE menu.

Mandrake 9.2 had a problem with a program.. I think it was something to do with rpm. I remember from when I used to use it that you go to Mandrake Update and update the program. You shouldn't have the menus die when you install an rpm package anymore.
