Start menu problem solved

Postby dbase on Wed Oct 29, 2008 1:54 pm

Hi all
When I start an application from the start menu the menu does not minimize. It stays open over the application until i focus on the application

Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You don't tell us which version of Mint (please always do) but my guess is main
For some reason I don't understand pin-menu is sometimes mysteriously enabled
Open gconf-editor (as normal user from the terminal)
Find the key
/apps/mintMenu
In the right hand pane there is an option called pin_menu
I guess it's ticked - deselect and you're done

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
