Which GNOME version are you using (In version 2.10 it's impossible to do this with a GUI)?

gnome-menu-editor install help!!

I FOND A SOFTWARE FORM WWW.GNOMEFILES.ORG THAT IS KNOWN AS gnome-menu-editor BUT BEFORE INSTALLING THEY HAVE TOLD TO DO SOME PATCHES TO GNOME, THIS IS WHAT THEY SAY

This is a simple menu editor for GNOME in its early stages.

As of 2005-03-29, you'll have to apply the patches

> http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=168526
> http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=168616

against gnome-menus before being able to compile/use GNOME Menu Editor.

HOW TO APPLY THE PATCHES ??

anybody help!!
