kmenuedit missing Mandrake 10


When I tried to use Menu Editor nothing happened so I opened a console, logged in as root, and tried to locatekmenuedit. Got this info:

[root@dhcppc2 jerry]# kmenuedit
bash: kmenuedit: command not found
[root@dhcppc2 jerry]# locate kmenuedit
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en_GB/kmenuedit
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en_GB/kmenuedit/index.cache.bz2
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en_GB/kmenuedit/common
/usr/share/doc/HTML/en_GB/kmenuedit/index.docbook
/usr/share/locale/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES/kmenuedit.mo
/usr/share/applications/kde/kmenuedit.desktop
/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/16x16/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/icons/kdeclassic/16x16/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/icons/kdeclassic/32x32/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/icons/kdeclassic/48x48/apps/kmenuedit.png
/usr/share/applnk/System/kmenuedit.desktop

Not sure what to do now. Has anyone else had this problem? I would appreciate any suggestions for this NEWBIE!

Or configure your menus from control centre.

Tried all that without success! The whole "menu thing' (technical term known only to Newbies) seems to be missing.

I will wait until the 10 Official is available and reinstall--thanks for the suggestions, though, I appreciate your taking the time to respond.

Yeah, saw that, but have been unable to get into the mirrors so will wait a bit.

I am still curious where the kmenuedit stuff went...it is definitely not there.l

Are you sure you ran it as root. Try to get at it from the Mandrake Control Centre.

Yup, so Newbie Newbie I am not. And my Mandrake Control Center seems to lack any menu editing capability as well.

Seltsam. Bizarre. Raro.

OK, did that and then reinstalled 10 CE afterwards, and things are much better. I can edit the menu, and most buttons work. Great!

Thanks for sticking with the me and the problem--it made me learn a lot more about Linux, which is the point after all!

Wow...I was really unhappy to see that kmenuedit isn't there for one big reason:

The only way I've ever found to assign shortcut keys to launch a program (if, for example, I want Ctrl-Alt-T to launch a terminal) is to use kmenuedit. The mandrake menu stuff doesn't have anything of the sort...please correct me if I'm just missing it.

Anyone know any other way to do this?? This is a feature I simply can't do without...that's how I lauch almost everything I commonly use.
