where did my mandrake buttons/launchers go?


First off you guys are great for all the help, but I have another(minor) problem. I'm running Mandrake 9.2 and everything is great, until I tried to install upgraded packages using Mandrake Upgrade(rpmdrake I think its called), anyways I downloaded updates for gaim and office and a couple of other things I thought I needed, and those went fine. Then I figured I might need some of the other "security upgrades" so I starting clicking away and ended up with most of the possibilities....I reboot and re-login to see if anything messed up and sure enough I no longer have any icons in my Main Menu. I can add to a new panel the Menu Bar(the one with two menus, MandrakeLinux, and Actions) and I have all of the Actions still there fine, but the MandrakeLinux menu is empty...

I know its kinda trivial but I have no idea where to find the programs, to re-build my menu, or even at the very least what the command line is for the program that manages the menu itself...names escape me right now. So any ideas or help would be great!! Thanks

from the command line type:
update-menus

then start your GUI again.
