[SOLVED] Whiskermenu gone
« on: September 25, 2018, 02:05:20 pm »
I tried to install menulibre but it replaced whiskermenu and I can only see icons from whine.
Tried to remove it, tried to delete all files I can find of menulibre. Have tried to reinstall whiskermenu and xfce.
I have searched on Google without results. Saw something about a bug but no solution.

Is there anyone here who can help me?
Because I don't longer have any menu so did I install mate desktop so I can use the computer without open everything in the terminal.

Here's a picture: https://imgur.com/a/2jdrFTW

I hope someone can help me.

Nope. Did not work at all. Tried twice and even logged out the second time after restarting the panel.
Thanks for the suggestion. I hoped it would help.

b) run:

mkdir -p ~/.config/menus/applications-merged
then
Code: [Select]
touch ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu
c) post the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat ~/.config/lxsession/Peppermint/desktop.conf | grep menu_prefix
d) post the contents of
Code: [Select]
pluma /etc/xdg/menus/peppermint-applications.menu
e) post the contents (if any) of
Code: [Select]
pluma ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/xdg-desktop-menu-dummy.menu

No. I switch back to xfce when I am running the commandos.

You're switching back to an "Xfce" session .. or a "Peppermint" session ?

If you're running Peppermint 7, have you tried this:

Switch to Xfce. I am not really a noob. Have used linux since 2008 or so. When windows vista did get released.
It,s only that I have no clue to fix this.
WIll check the link out and I come back wit a reply if it worked or not.
