Linux Mint Mate Menu Issues

Post by Caltrop » Fri Jun 15, 2018 11:08 am

New Computer, new Linux Mint, new problems...

I see the Mate Menu is still messed up as ever.

New apps don't install menu items so it has to be done manually.

I got some Wine items added to the menu & tried to move them around.

Now I have a BLANK Menu! :o
Can not edit the menu anymore either, wow...

here's what mozo gives me:

Code: Select all

caltrop@dragon ~ $ mozo
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.

** (mozo:3753): WARNING **: Error loading menu layout from "/home/caltrop/.config/menus/": Line 121 character 1: Element <Old> is required to contain text and was empty

Was it OK when first installed, or was like this? Did you check the hash on the downloaded ISO to insure it was OK?
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
