Missing KDE Menu Items


I tried to organize the Kmenu by putting Setting, Tools, Utilities... all in a submenu Main. But, now Main isn't there (along with everything I put in it).

Is there somthing to fix this, like a program to autofill the menu?

I tried 'kappfinder' but all it found was 1 internet app.

You can go back, and reset to "Default".
Be sure to File>Save when you are done.
X-Kill the taskbar, and then, right click the desktop, choose "Run Command" - and start kicker.
Should be good to go.

There is no 'Default' option in the Menu Editor. Is there a command to reset to default, or can I copy some one else's saved Kmenu?

I'm pretty sure I did save it (but with the Main intact).

Well, I reinstalled Slackware to fix it... but heres a faster way.

Make a subdirectory in root/:
i.e.: /root/subd/

in Konquerer, select /root/
ctrl+x
browse to /root/subd/
ctrl+v
'Edit' 'Undo: Move'
I got an error such as "Error: /root/ directory already exists. But no /root/ shows up...
exit KDE

mv /root/subd/ /tmp/
mv /tmp/root/subd/root/ /
rm /tmp/root/
startx

once back inside KDE, the menu is back to 'Default'

There is an easier way.....

Simply rename this file, and restart X:

Code:
~/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu

Thanks, I just found that file

I was browsing /root/ to see what could have done it... and found nothing. But, then I remembered view hidden files is usually off.

Quote:
/root/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu
Well, I still learnded alot

p.s. Saturday seems to be the day to get good help.

No offense, but that's the newbie way to do it. You're reinstalling the whole Window Manager just to revert to default settings?

You're deer hunting with a rocket launcher...

And the original poster uses Slackware (or so his
profile suggests) - there *is* no apt-get ;}


Cheers,
