OpenSUSE :: Cleaner Applications Menu With Alacarte?

Apr 21, 2010

Is there a way to clean up OpenSuse's applications menu with alacarte? It takes forever for me to find an existing menu item if I want to change or delete it, but deleting existing pre-defined groups (such as "Amusement", "Art and Culture", and "Games for Kids") doesn't work. They simply won't delete.

Ubuntu :: Alacarte Menu Editor Compatibility?

Jul 12, 2010

I've just recently downloaded Lubuntu 10.04 and tried it. It was nice because it was light on my machine.My only problem is, is that it doesn't have a graphical menu editor, and I don't know how to edit menus other than using GUIs.

I've read something about alacarte-menu-editor being able to be used in Lubuntu. I would just like to confirm if it DOES work with Lubuntu.

Debian Multimedia :: Alacarte Won't Add Folders Under "Games" Menu

Mar 21, 2011

Alacarte won't add folders under "Games" menu, and when I dragged an icon into one of the subfolders that was already there, that icon and the folder I was dragging it to went poof.

I really don't want to learn the standards just to edit my main menu. What is wrong with this?

OpenSUSE :: Applications Launched From Gnome Menu Are Not Always Visible

Mar 26, 2011

I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.

OpenSUSE :: Left Over Icons In Applications Menu After Uninstall?

Jul 6, 2011

I uninstalled Google Earth and the "grey" icon remains no matter what I do. Also I had wine to run an MS application I uninstalled wine, before uninstalling the application. The icons remain, do I need to re-install wine again, uninstall the application then uninstall wine? The file that held the application I deleted, first because I had a brain fade.

OpenSUSE :: Clean Up Alacarte - Move Around Launchers In Application Browser

May 19, 2010

I like openSuSE, but the main thing I miss from Ubuntu is the ability to have complete control over the applications menu. Ubuntu had a clean menu where everything was one level deep, with pretty basic categories. But opening alacarte in openSuSE (running 11.2 with GNOME) is an absolute mess. There are categories for "Astronomy", "Kidsgames", and a whole bunch of folders that I would never use. And it's nearly impossible to get rid of them. Selecting delete almost never works; the closest I've gotten was to re-name a whole bunch of ".directory" files so that the system wouldn't find them, but it still created the majority of them, only this time with generic folders over the default icons.

Plus, I would like to be able to change which application goes to which category in the Application Browser. That menu is much more clean, but I would like to create a "Games" section for it, and move my text editors from Utility to Development. I know that most of the .desktop files are in /usr/share/applications (I have a couple in /usr/local/share), the directories are defined in /usr/share/desktop-directories and ~/.local/share/desktop-directories, and the menu itself seems to define categories in /etc/xdg/menus/ But despite knowing all of this, I still have no idea how to clean up alacarte and how to move around launchers in the Application Browser.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Missing From KDE Menu And File Associations Is Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

Ubuntu :: Alacarte Won't Start Up From The Shell

Jan 8, 2010

When I try to start alacarte from the shell, I get: Traceback (most recent call last):


The reason I start from the shell is because I noticed that it would crash after starting up in system monitor. This problem started after I tried to remove a program from the list which had already been manually removed. When this program was unchecked, the list went completely blank. I tried to revert the list, but it didn't work. Is there any hopes of repair?

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Alacarte Clean Up?

Apr 12, 2010

Ever since I first discovered alacarte (gnome menu editor) I have been creating lots of menus and submenus for gnome menu so I can always find what I want. To avoid having to redo them, whenever I try another gnome based distro or do a fresh install I always copy ~/.local/share/desktop-directories and applications (and a couple of other files, I forget right now) so I can use the same menus in those.

Well, I don't use these custom menus so much lately so have gone for a much simpler solution of creating a "Favourites" submenu and just adding apps I use a lot. It was while rummaging around .local today I noticed there are hundreds of left over files from long since deleted custom menus (like 18 months+) that I have been copying from one distro to another all this time. Why on earth doesn't alacarte delete all these deleted menus and applications files?

I just did a little experiment: I deleted everything out of these folders so I was basically left with the stock gnome menu with no customizations. I then added a new submenu and then added 3 random apps to to it. I then went and deleted two of those apps and when I went to check, sure enough ~/.local/share/applications contained the 3 files instead of one.

This may be elementary to some, and prolly should to me. Quiet awhile ago I took off wine and deleted EVERYTHING wine from my /home.

I hear wine has made some progress and don't want to format my /home partition.

I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop using WUBI to preserve my Windows XP installation.

Ubuntu :: Put A Script In Applications Menu?

Jan 3, 2011

I just downloaded the most recent SuperTuxKart from SourceForge. It is ready-to-run (no compiling, no making).The script that runs the whole thing contains this single line:Code:LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin/: bin/supertuxkartOf course, when I double-click on it, I select Run and I'm off racing Tux.But I'd like this to be in the Applications > Games menu.I tried adding a launcher and for the command I just browsed to that script and clicked OK.But when I click the launcher, nothing starts.So what to do? The script has no shebang line, do I put one in? Granted I can just create a desktop shortcut, but I'd really like it to be up there with my other games.

Fedora :: Put New Application Under Applications->Programming Menu

Feb 4, 2011

I just installed GNAT GPS and would like it to display under Applications->Programming drop down menu. How does one do this? I have read about creating a .desktop file but tried that and it still does not appear under the menu I like. It does appear on the desktop but not because of the .desktop file.

OS: fedora 14 63-bit

An example file (if needed) would be nice.

Also, just as a extra, has anyone found the GNAT GPS icon (.png) file?

Fedora :: Messed Up 'applications Menu' After Upgrade To 15

May 27, 2011

I upgraded to Fedora 15 (64 bit) on my laptop using preupgrade. Everything is working great except for a small problem. My menus are completely messed up. In F14, I had organized my menus in a particular way. After the upgrade, many of items have been moved around quite randomly. I tried to fix it using 'alacarte' but nothing is changed in that - i.e. according to 'alacarte' all my menus are in the right place. In reality, though, the upgrade process has deleted a few menu folders but not the items in them. The items are just moved to random locations. Is there a way to fix these changes these? 'alacarte' is of no use here. Is it possible to fix these using CLI? Where are the information regarding the menu organization stored?
