View Full Version : [gnome] GNOME Menu/Alacarte Giving Me Fits

February 12th, 2009, 10:30 PM
Hello, all. My apologies if this is painfully basic and/or has been covered elsewhere.

I've just installed Intrepid on my laptop. All appears to be going very well except getting the GNOME 'Applications' menu to do what I want it to do. I'm using Alacarte to try to enable display of the 'Debian' and 'System Tools' menu categories. When I check the box for Debian and exit Alacarte, the menu does not display the Debian entry. When I check the box for System Tools, it unchecks itself after a couple of seconds. When I check both Debian and System Tools, both uncheck themselves.

This is similar to a problem I have on my desktop machine, as described in this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1020871). For what it's worth, that problem was never satisfactorily resolved.

Any and all guidance would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
