SOLVED how to reinstate the start menu

Postby keratos on Fri Apr 11, 2014 10:27 am

Ive tinkered and lost the nice new start menu in xfce mint 16

I deleted the panel and when I re-add the applications menu button I get the "old tired" simpleton start menu.

How do I reinstate them menu as it was after fresh install?

Hello, keratos.

Mint 16 xfce:
You should have added back the "Whisker Menu" plugin to the panel list and moved it to the top. Moving it to the top makes sure that the [Menu] button will be displayed in the left bottom corner of the screen.

HTH,
Karl
