Unable to get Mate-Advanced-Menu to show.

I have been trying to debug this off and on for a few months now.

I am using the basic menu for now, but miss the type search to launch applications.

I can add the advanced menu to the panel, but it doesn’t appear on the panel.

I have run mate-menu reset (and clean) with no change.

I have removed the mate-menu and related rpms and then logged out and logged back in, and reinstalled.

I am not sure what else to do at this point.

I have placed more details for this issue in a bug here:
