How to activate mintmenu in Mate?

Postby DrTeeth on Sat Nov 24, 2012 8:36 pm

Hi,

I installed Linux Mint 14 RC Cinnamon and then installed Mate. Both DTs are working well except that I do not have mintmenu showing by default under Mate. The furthest I have got is by finding out that it was not installed and them installing it. In spite of Googling and searching this forum, I am no closer to achieving this. Mate is no good to me with out mintmenu - I hate the default Gnome 2 layout. Can somebody please help point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Not sure what you need but have you tried right clicking on the bottom panel and selecting /Add to Panel/Mint Menu?

Thank you very much, that nailed it. If one is installing and adding to panel in one step; one needs to install and logout before adding to the panel as otherwise the mintmenu will not show up. Some items get added to a taskbar immediately and some need a logout and login to see them.

This was not required in Mint 13...I wonder why it was deemed worthy of changing for LM 14?

Cheers
