MintMenu

Postby FoolOnTheHill on Sat Feb 02, 2008 10:15 pm

I have two questions about MintMenu.

The first is, I installed 2 applications (irc clients) through PacketManager, and after a successful install they don't show up on mintmenu.

The second one is more like an explanation. Darnya and romeo, are versions of mint or of mint menu?

Thank you...

Check to see if it is listed in main menu from the control center. If not restart X (ctrl+alt+backspace).

Daryna is the Codename for Linux Mint Release 4.0.

Romeo is the Linux Mint Unstable repository. It is where new software is introduced for testing.

The mint menu is very buggy if you ask me, thats why I dont use it.
The thing needs a major overhaul along with the original USP, but that project is frozen so...

Is there a way to edit the Mint Application Menu in Daryna from Nautilus maybe? I uninstalled a program under wine, yet the applications icons still appear in the menu. I'd like to delete them.

you can use the standard menu editor really, but do yourself a favor and use the normal gnome dual panel layout so you can have the menu bar replace the buggy mint menu

I find the MintMenu to be just fine. If you want to delete a program and do completely open terminal and run:

sudo apt-get remove --purge <app>

Cleans it from the system.

If you have not done so, go to terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Uncomment the romeo repo line, save and close. Next:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

When it finishes installing, restart.

You will like the new mintmenu very much.

@sunny rabbiera: tried USP. No comparison. Heavy, large, and missing functionality, such as file access. You couldn't pay me to use it! My two cents, only.

edit: You can try Gimmie. It is in the repo. Don't care to double-click an app to start though. But it may be your cup of tea.
Peace, and Linux Mint!
