Mintmenu in mate crashes on startup:

Postby klepto » Sun Aug 26, 2012 5:14 pm

Aug 26 03:45:17 LUNASYLUM kernel: [ 122.769679] mintmenu[2017]: segfault at 18 ip 0000000000579493 sp 00007fffb74a3210 error 4 in python2.7[400000+271000]

On startup, mintmenu crashes and I reload and reload again and it comes back. Any reason for the crash?

Running Mint Mate Maya, nice ring to it ;)

Thanks for the help!

Press Alt+F2 to open the run dialog, then run the following command to delete your mintMenu settings:

Code: Select all

rm -fr ~/.mateconf/apps/mintMenu

Then logout and login again (or do Alt+F2 and "sudo reboot" if you don't have another menu from which to logout), and the mintMenu settings will be recreated to the default.

You may have to do:

Code: Select all

killall mintmenu

once after logging in to reload the mintMenu.

That did it, I worked without reloading or crashing!

Thanks much!
