    Alacarte isn't updating menus

    Hi All

    I've been using alacarte to update the menu in my gnome desktop. It's not working properly, it only adds or remove's some of the menu items, and doesn't revert. I've tried using it both as normal and as root. It doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Is there a central config file that alacarte draws on for its menu lists? There is definiitly something broken, i'd love to know what.

    Thank You
    Glenn.

    The location of the file is usr/share/alacarte . I can't offer suggestions for editing though.

    You can get a list of all installed files using synaptic package manager.
