SOLVED - Menu button still says Elyssa

Postby Striker on Mon May 25, 2009 9:42 pm

Okay, so I'm a slow upgrader. Today I upgraded from Mint5 to Mint6, but after I was done, the menu button at the bottom left of the screen still says Elyssa. When I installed Felicia I only formatted the root partition, kept my /home folder as is. Any idea what's wrong here?

Just right-click the menu icon and click Properties, and in that box there is an option to rename the menu.

Just so others don't waste their time, and for any other users who might have this problem, I found the problem/solution.

Go to file: /home/<username>/.gconf/apps/mintMenu/%gconf.xml

Open this file in Text Editor. On line #47 (line number might be different), you'll see this text:

<stringvalue>Elyssa</stringvalue>

Replace "Elyssa" with whatever name you want and it will show up next to the Main Menu icon on the Gnome Panel at the bottom of the screen.


Note: This is a workaround fix. I believe the upgrade scripts should update this file IF the upgrader is NOT formatting his Home directory.
