KDE menu editor - broken? Does nothing...


When I right-click K and choose "Menu Editor" nothing happens at all.

In addition, if I go to "configure KDE"/LookNFeel/Panels/Menus and click "Edit K Menu" nothing happens still.

I have noticed some odd K Menu behaviour before (e.g. one day many of my "quicklaunch" icons disappeared", and some items occasionally disappear from my custom "just click on the desktop" menu.)

What do you think is up with it? I've tried logging out and then typing startx to start it all up afresh, but to no avail.

you could try creating another user account
logging in to it and seeing if the problem repeats

if it does then the problem is in the / somewhere

if it doesn't
then it's one of the kde files in your user area

and cardiff is NOT in england

If a create a new user, editing the K menu works fine, so it must be inside my user area, probably in one of those /.hidden folders?
