"System Tool" in Menu not showing up

Postby anuvnu387 » Sat May 16, 2009 12:04 pm

Hi Guys,
After trying Ubuntu for few months. I just jumped into linux mint 7 RC. I am having a minor problem with the menu. The "system tools" category is not showing up in the menu even after enabling it through edit menu option. I know I can find every under the "All" category but just wondering why the "System Tools" category is not showing up. Any help will be appreciated very much.

There has been a debate about "System tools", "Administration" and "Preferences"
What should be shown and what not so this is by design
A lot of people thought it was unnecessary to show them and there are no enabled items in it by default
You have to have an enabled menu post in a category for it to show up
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
