Messed up my menu, no applications anymore [solved]

Post by Luke5 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 6:38 am

Somehow i managed to mess up my menu.
Linux Mint MATE 18.3 x64
When i click on applications everything is empty
Tried mintmenu --reset as in topic viewtopic.php?f=206&t=271174#p1481272 but that does not work for me.

Is there a way to fix it or do i have to do a new install?

Thx in advance, Luke

Hi Luke5,

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall mintmenu
Hopefully it will resolve the issue.

Cheers

I fixed it :lol:

I renamed the folder ./config/menus to ./config/OLDmenus
Did a reboot and my menus are working again :D :D :D
