Thread: Alacarte (main menu editor) broken in 12.2 Gnome Shell

  1. #1

    Default Alacarte (main menu editor) broken in 12.2 Gnome Shell

    I can not get Alacarte to accept changes I make by unchecking apps that I do not want listed. I can however delete apps from the list, but that is not the best solution as I might want to easily add those apps back.
    Am I missing something? Is there a way to get it to work like it did in 12.1?

    Could someone at least acknowledge if Alacarte works for them or not?

    Hello and welcome. I can confirm. If I uncheck gedit from alacarte it still shows up in the gnome shell even if I restart the shell. I am not sure how to fix.

    Thank you nightwishfan for confirming. I guess it is a busy day for the mods here to be able to respond.

    We are not really that better placed to advise than anyone else, especially if we use KDE like me.

    Hi
    OK, any of the items you de-select will duplicate in;
    Code:
    ~/.local/share/applications
    For example if you uncheck gedit in alacarte, then look in the above
    directory, there will be a gedit.desktop entry. You then need to edit
    and add;
    Code:
    NoDisplay=true
    Then it will not be in that users Application list.

    Alacarte is broken yet again with the Gnome Shell 3.6 update.

    Is this going to be a trend with OpenSUSE, broken apps in stable releases?

    Hi
    3.6 is for testing... either hit the mailing list or IRC as indicated
    in http://dominique.leuenberger.net/blo...opensuse-12-2/
