Installation / Re: Menu missing after install (SOLVED)
« on: June 26, 2016, 04:10:03 pm »
Same thing here - fresh install completely for me so maybe settings aren't being inserted correctly on install. Worth a check to see what is happening or you may put new users off.
Started a terminal and rebooted but will follow these instructions next time I boot into there.

Otherwise first glance seems to be a very good system you've put together.

Peppermint 6 was a high standard to beat, been almost a year since I last had to log in here to ask anything, it all 'just worked out of the box' hopefully this is even better.

A dvd, created from your website, md5checksum is fine, mirror is the first one on the uk list for downloading what isn't on the cd during install.
options for third party and upgrades during install both set to NO. everything else - out of the box - click through to finish.

running the command from a terminal I get
Code: [Select]
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/ddchess.desktop

(gedit:24687): Gtk-WARNING **: Calling Inhibit failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files
in the terminal (it does open a blank gedit file though)

it would seem that I am not getting it installed by default.

If you meant without the gedit, I get;
Code: [Select]
~/.local/share/applications/ddchess.desktop
bash: /home/dominic/.local/share/applications/ddchess.desktop: No such file or directory

Aye Andy, thanks. I have the .local and subfolder share - see yesterdays posts, it is the applications folder that is missing, along apparently with Trash, keyring and ice, I still don't have them but should possibly point out that I haven't used the programs that (might) create them either.
the contents of .local/share are the folders gvfs-metadata, nemo and swellfoop. Oh, and the file recently-used.xbel.

Thinking back, I don't think the kdegames ran from the menu on peppermint 5 either. I always stuck them on the desktop then IIRC.

Not encrypted, just a basic standard install no special manoeuvres or anything.

Code: [Select]
locate ddchess.desktop
/etc/skel/.local/share/applications/ddchess.desktop

Hi PCNetSpec,
Well, I re-installed and still don't have a .local/share/applications folder in my home drive. Are you certain it should be created at install and not by some later program you run?
I checked the md5checksum against the one on your site and it is a match so, if it should definitely be there, there is some other issue going on here.
If I can just say, not having the folder is not an issue for me, everything runs as it should so no problems, I won't bother with Kdenlive and the k games though, it seems to much trouble just to play a different version of sudoku on this version of linux.
Cheers for the help.

As it has only been installed since yesterday I'll go for a re-install over the next day or two!

No, the only thing from the previous install is .xresources  (just alters text sizes) and a text file and both were added after install. The drive was re-partitioned and formatted (for what good that is) before install.

No, it still doesn't run from the menu>games>ksuoku  it does run from .local/share/applications/ksudoku.desktop.

Code: [Select]
dominic@ellobox ~ $ ls -a ~/.local/share
.  ..  gnome-mines  gvfs-metadata  mime  nemo  recently-used.xbel  swell-foop
dominic@ellobox ~ $ ls -a ~/.local
.  ..  share

Not too sure about anything being broken! I only installed it yesterday but, all the other bits work fine, just not much installed on it yet, it is only really used for on-line.
kdenlive runs from the menu and that is the program I actually wanted.
I was going to check if ksudoku worked on Debian LXDE but looking at all those dependencies for the one game put me off testing it :smiley-face:

Yes, it runs from the desktop and from a terminal, it is not just ksudoku, it is also kmahjong, ksirk, klickety etc. I needed to install a k program and had to have all the dependencies anyway so I didn't think it would be much of an issue to add a few games while I was there.

That gives me;

dominic@ellobox ~ $ cp -v /usr/share/applications/kde4/ksudoku.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/ksudoku.desktop
‘/usr/share/applications/kde4/ksudoku.desktop’ -> ‘/home/dominic/.local/share/applications/ksudoku.desktop’
cp: cannot create regular file ‘/home/dominic/.local/share/applications/ksudoku.desktop’: No such file or directory

Now I have decided I'm happy with Peppermint 6, I have installed a couple of games beginning with k to relieve moments of boredom, they won't run from the menu though, just nothing after they are clicked. They run if I add them to the desktop and start them from there although they do come with a warning like this

The application launcher "kde4-ksudoku.desktop" has not been marked as trusted (executable). If you do not know the source of this file, launching it may be unsafe.

How do I get them to run from the menu?

Just the Grinch out to try and ruin christmas again :)
Probably all over google+ by now tho' .Checked out the original poster and it's some far left American claiming to be from anonymous (which means he isn't). Does have about 15000 followers so expect to hear a fair bit about this.
