menu problems

In a few different distros, currently the Mint17 release candidate, when replacing the Whisker menu with the older standard application menu, you get only a partial menu.

This other user has the same problem  menu

He had made a few changes to his system, but mine was a straight install.

Re: menu problems

The problem may be related to a file named "Garcon".  The other place to check (from the PCLinuxOS Forum)  reverting the code base of the panel to 4.10.1 fixes the problem.  I don't know how to do this.

Re: menu problems

Garcon is actually a package. It provides the /etc/xdg/xfce-applications.menu file and the /usr/share/desktop-directories files.

Out of curiosity, is this new version of Mint still based on Xubuntu? Both of the menu systems in Xubuntu work with the latest garcon packages.

Re: menu problems

Yes, it is the Ubuntu based version of Mint, but I have seen the same problem on Makulu (a Debian based distro) and PcLinuxOS (which is sort of Red Hat based.)  The right click>Application Menu is fine, the panel menu, not.

Re: menu problems

Hey I got my application menu back in mint 17 by going into synaptics package manager and reinstalling libgarcon 1-0 and rebooting. Still, right clicking just launches program. Anyone have any ideas?
