Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5917
Menu Items Missing from Menu Editor
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:13:34 EDT
Situation: Upgrade from 6.0 to 6.1
The menu items on the main menu do not match the menu items
in the menu edit.
On the main menu under graphics/Gimp is listed twice.
On the main menu under Multimedia/xmms is listed.
In the menu editor under graphics/Gimp is listed once.
In the menu editor under multimedia/xmms is _NOT_ listed.
These are the most obvios example of the problem.
It now seems the Gnome Main menu is a Combination of the Gnome menu
and the RedHat menu. The Main menu = Gnome Menu + RedHat menu.
I have not seen the config to remove this aggragation.
I have verified this on a system upgraded from 6.0 to 6.1. I am reassigning this
to a developer.
This is due to a lack of menu-merging code in the menu-editor. The next release
of GNOME will (hopefully) fix this. However, as this is a major pain to write,
I do not expect it will be done in the old branch.
