There is no /.config directory on either of the netbooks I have installed Peppermint on. I also downloaded a pre-built .VDI file from the net and checked on it - no /.config directory (or file).

Hello Robert, that is the first I have heard about Peppermint 5. I'm also under time constraints. I go on vacation in 11 days (school is already finished) and probably will not have time to set the things up between when I get back and when the school starts. Beginning and end of the school year are the busiest times for us.

Posted the results above. Nowhere in there is there any <Name>Preferences</Name> but that is what appears on the menu normally (just under System Tools, which also does not appear anywhere as a <Name> entry.

I am setting up Peppermint 4 to use on 2 dozen netbooks in an elementary school computer lab. Almost finished the setup and found the Preferences category has disappeared from the main menu. I've researched on the web which says the menu layout is contained in /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu and /etc/xdg/Peppermint/menus/lxde-applications.menu. Both these files exist but they do not come close to matching with the menu that actually apears. I would like to be able to correct whatever happened in the first place rather than go through the complete throes of reinstalling and doing all the customizations and modifications we want in order to put these machines into the hands of a great number of 'creative' youngsters working under teachers who know nothing about computers in general, much less Linux.
