Description of problem:

I just installed both KDE and Gnome for testing and the Gnome menu was filled
with KDE apps. 

It would be a nice feature to have the ability right click and hide/remove
an app from the menu. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

You will have to use the menu editor for this:

System  > Preferences > Appearance > Main Menu
Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-11-10 14:10:48 EST
The proper path to the menu editor is 
System --> Preference --> Appearance --> Look and feel --> Main Menu 

Not that i'm going to argue with an Gnome Desktop developer @ Red Hat but one would think Right click Remove/Hide app from menu when users are used to right click "Move to trash" is better user experience than go through all the steps involving  System --> Preference --> Appearance --> Look and feel --> Main Menu for the simple task of hiding an app from menu..

And you do realize that System --> Preference --> Appearance --> Look and feel --> Main Menu needs to still be there for the user to be able to "show" that app
again in the menu if he choose to do so or Add would be needed as well...

The menu editor is also available from the context menu on the menubar itself.

...and context menus on menus are quite icky, user interaction-wise.
Comment 5 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2008-11-10 15:35:13 EST
The menu editor is ok for the effort to add something back to the menu..

Off topic.

What's the usual way to hide *DE apps from each other as in 
let's say I would deploy Fedora here at the uni in one computer lab
but would like the user to be able to choose what *DE he wants to use

How would one go about hiding the apps from each other as in if the user logs
into GDE and he would only get GDE apps?

Is there there some magic conf file that you can specify show only 
apps belonging to the *DE being logged into?
