Description of problem:
Upgraded from Redhat 9 + Garnome 0.27.1 to Fedora Core 0.95 via ISOs.
After upgrade & starting Gnome, Applications menu was completely empty.
Eventually I hit upon a workaround: I moved the existing .gnome2/vfolders
directory away to a different place and restarted gnome-panel. This gave me the
default Applications menu back, though of course I have lost the customizations
I had done to the menu contents.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can't truly reproduce the conditions before the upgrade, but this did happen to
more than one user account on the system.
I've experienced this too. Never used Ximian.
Under Red Hat 9 I had replaced my default-modules.conf with the
with-menu-editing version. On upgrading to Fedora Core 1, all the
applications in my Gnome Menu had disappeared!
I did get them back by replacing the default-modules.conf installed by
the Fedora installer with my previous working copy (backup saved by
the Fedora installer).
This probably has something to do with a change what happened with the
vfolder/menu gnome-vfs module between RH9 and FC1. Moving to gnome-vfs.
We no longer use vfolders or gnome-vfs1.
