the menu-xdg worked for both root and only user on my system. But I had not done anything to the (empty) debian folder on either before using it. I let it be. I heard about it like a day after the kdelibs upgrade broke it. Is everything intact under /var/lib/menu-xdg/ ? After installing it I have the /var/lib/menu-xdg/desktop-directories/menu-xdg with folder structure for the debian menu, /var/lib/menu-xdg/menus/debian-menu.menu and /var/lib/menu-xdg/applications/menu-xdg with all the .desktop files.

Unhappy

Hi guys,

I have a similar, yet different problem.

First, my debian menu for root disappeared, and some applications would not show up in the menu of my normal user account.

Then, I installed menu-xdg, and now all the menu items in the debian menu are duplicated, and root still doesn't have a Debian menu.

I created a new account, and the menus in that account are all fine.

Any ideas on what could be causing the menus in my regular user to be duplicated???

Ok guys,

I think I fixed it. Here is what I did:

there is a directory called kde in ~/.local/share/applications. That is where the menu items are stored. When I installed menu-xdg, a new directory called menu-xdg is created with basically the same menu structure as the one in the kde directory.

Anyway, what I did was delete the kde directory (actually moved it somewhere else), and ran update-menus again. That did the trick. Hope this helps anybody with the same problem

Bye

remove the file that is located in this directory: /root/.config/menus/

i think its name was applications or something, but opening the file showed a header and body like html that mentioned that this file had been created when invoking the menu update tool

Possible fix

I found that in ~/.kde/share, there is a folder called applnk

if you do the following

mv ~/.kde/share/applnk ~/.kde/share/applnk.old && update-menus

you will mv the old applnk folder, and the recreate it. That should work...
