I finally had a need for the search and indexing function, the tracker and so I did some searching and im supposed to have a "search and indexing" option in my menu but its not there.

Any idea how I can find it? How I can put it back on the menu?

Don't look under system, look under places > home folder > search

I think you misunderstand ...

Im looking for the "search and indexing" feature ...

There are settings I want to access, im not specifically looking for another way to search, I want access to the "search and indexing" function thats mysteriously disappeared from my menu (it should be there on your menu under System->Preferences->Search and Indexing)

Thanks anyway ...

Sorry, I did misunderstand. Try to reinstall gnome-main-menu should do the trick

No, I meant right click your panel, remove from panel, reboot, and then right click your panel and add main menu. Sorry for the confusion, I think the one you have attached to your panel is corrupted.

Removed it from the panel, reboot and added it, still no "search and indexing" option to be found at all ...

Im using ubuntu 8.10, I dont understand it, must be missing something somewhere, I just cant wrap my head around it ...

Duh, sorry, right click on the panel where you have your menu, pick edit menu, (Preferences) and check the boxes you want. To simple, went right over my head ](*,)
