Wine "Program" submenu not in Mint menu

Postby rlindau on Sun Nov 29, 2009 1:27 am

I've just installed Mint 8, and Wine 1.1.31 (which I had been running previously on Mint 7).

The Wine "program" submenu doesn't show up in my Mint menu (although it DOES appear in the Gnome "main menu").

I've confirmed that the "display" checkbox is selected in the Gnome menu preferences (toggled the selection on and off, but with no apparent difference). I've rebooted a couple times since the Wine (and application, e.g., Quicken) install.

Any idea what I need to do for the Wine program submenu to show up?

Thanks, Rob L

I found a second example of my issue (submenus not appearing in Mint Menu, although they're in the Gnome Main Menu)...

I just installed gnome-games using Synaptic. The install put some games under the top-level "Games" category, but others under a "Logic" subcategory.

In the Mint menu,the "logic" subcategory doesn't show up at all. The games in the top-level "games" category appear, but the "logic" subcategory and the games in it do not appear. I can see the subcategory and the games under it in the gnome main menu (as well as in the gome main menu prefernces preferences, where the category is tick-marked to be displayed), but not in the Mint menu.

Although the problem may be peculiar to me (but I had done a clean install of Mint 8 and have done no configuration changes), I begin to suspect a Mint Menu problem with subcategories / submenus.

Is anyone else seeing the same thing?

Same thing I was unable to find how to make submenus appear, the only way seems to move submenu at the level of menu wich is not convenient: the menu list grows too long

Just checked mine and it's fine. Needed a reboot though if it's any help.

I've since gone back to the traditional menu as MintMenu seems a bit buggy. Not only do some apps not work when clicked, but as reported here, the submenus do not appear for Wine. I rebooted and no sub menu. I reloaded plugins, no submenu. I removed MintMenu from the panel and then put it back, no submenu. I reloaded plugins again, and got most of the submenu. The 'Programs" folder is missing in my case...

I can also report that submenus do not work for me under Mint 8 with my CXGames install.

A fix has been released!

Check for updates and a new MintMenu (4.9.1) is available. Works perfectly now:
