Re: update-menus on debian unstable broken ??



Since not many others have had the same issue I submitted it as a bug.

THe maintainer for the menu programme was very helpful

solution
remove any old references to menu in ~/.local and ~/.config

install menu-xdg

update-menus

all now works

I did a apt-get dist upgrade on Friday
since then the update-menus command seems to be failing
I use my own menus in ~/.menu

THey have been updating happily for about 7 months
Now I add another entry to the menus run update-menus -v
and update-menus -d
THey both show the new entry being added but it never appears in the menus
same if I remove an entry. nothing happens. THere is no error from update-menus and nothing changes

can anyone suggest some more tests I can do

 needs=x11\

the number in this entry in update-menus -v increases and decreases as I add and remove entries
