    OK, I created a test user, but the result was the same. No changes
    could be made using Alacarte. From a terminal I tried first to view
    properties on an entry, and then to create a new entry. The output is
    below -


    Code:
    --------------------
    Kinzie@linux-xxxx:~> alacarte


    (alacarte:6856): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_accel_label_set_accel_closure:
    assertion `gtk_accel_group_from_accel_closure (accel_closure) != NULL'
    failed

    I'll re-install if you still feel it's worthwhile. Many thanks for your
    continued patience.


    Hi
    Yes, reinstall alarcarte, edit and try again.

    Hullo again. I reinstalled Alacarte this morning and re-edited the utils.py file, but still to no avail.

    Wonder what's happening? I did note that in the Gnome Stable repo, Alacarte is version 3.7.9, rather than 3.8.x. Could this be the problem?

    Hi. Not sure what you mean by "backlevel", but I guess I'll just wait until this application gets upgraded in the Gnome:Stable repo.

    Thanks all.

    Ah! Well that version doesn't seem to be available to me in YasT. If I select repositories, and browse the openSUSE-12.3-Oss repo, the version available is the same as the Gnome:Stable one.

    No matter. I can wait until a newer, fixed version of the program is available. Thanks all.

    Hi
    In YaST check the versions tab?

    Well that's embarrassing. I've been using openSUSE for ages and never thought to check that drop down box! Thanks for that.

    I've installed the older version and applied the fix. It works now, but I do hope Gnome fix this for future releases.

    Thanks for your help.

    move back (down) to the previous level (version)..

    hmmm, maybe it should be presented as "back level"

    if you install a new version and it does not work, then a back level
    is often the quickest fix

    We probably shouldn't be installing alacarte by default... it clearly does not support GNOME anymore. (alacarte was picked up by MATE last year so it's not really being tested with GNOME anymore; GNOME half-dropped it in the transition to 3.0 and other distros stopped installing it, but the module just sort of stuck around.)

    I hope GNOME comes up with an alternative (and I've heard it already has one but I'm not sure that's true).
