Description Ed Avis 2007-04-14 11:49:37 UTC
I wanted to add an item to the 'start menu' so I looked at the GNOME online help. This says: >You can modify the contents of the following menus: > > * Applications menu > * System → Preferences submenu > * System → Administration submenu > >To edit the items in these menus, right-click on the panel menubar, and choose >Edit Menus. The Menu Layout window opens. However, this is not the case. When I right-click on the text 'Applications', for example, the menu that appears has the items Help, Remove from Panel, Move, and Lock to Panel. As far as I can tell, there is no way to right-click and have a menu appear with an Edit Menus item. This happens also with a newly created user (and so a clean profile). Either GNOME should be fixed to provide the Edit Menus option, or the help text should be corrected.

Edit Menus should be there. If you bring up a terminal, what is the output of rpm -q alacarte ?

I don't currently have access to the machine where I observed this. It had started off as Fedora Core 3 or so and been upgraded to 4, 5 and 6. But I can note one thing. In the bottom left of the screen, instead of an 'F' icon that can be clicked on to show a main menu, there is a much smaller 'F' and then three pieces of text: Applications, Places, System. In other words there are three start menus instead of one. If you want to shut down the machine, for example, that's under System. I have no idea why GNOME displays the three menus separately on the menu bar, when on other systems it combines them into one. So I was trying to right-click on the word 'Applications' which appears directly on the menu bar. A menu appears but it has no Edit Menus entry. When I get a chance I will do an rpm -qa and attach the output to this bug report.

Okay, I'm going to put this back in NEEDINFO until then.

The information we've requested above is required in order to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've requested additional information, we're assuming the problem is either no longer present in our current OS release, or that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem. Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem, please feel free to provide the information requested above, and reopen the report. Thank you in advance. (this message is mass message)
