View Full Version : [ubuntu] Debian Menu Entry Disappearing

November 18th, 2008, 05:53 PM

I have created a custom menu entry in the Debian menu through the file system. However, every time I install "important" Ubuntu updates through the update manager, this particular menu entry disappears from the menu and the file system (the .desktop file, not the entire application). It is hard for me to consistently recreate the problem because I have to wait for "important" Ubuntu updates to become available. I have tried running "update-menus" but that has no effect. No other menu entries are affected. I'm running Ubuntu 8.10.

It's not hard to recreate the menu entry with a new .desktop file, but it is annoying and it concerns me that this could start happening with other entries.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
