    I destroyed my menu...can it be restored?


    Hi-
    I am new to linux. I am running fedora core 2 and in an attempt to make my "start menu" more easily editable i followed the instructions here: http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/redhat...u_editing.html

    After i did this and logged out and logged back my start menu is blank above "run application..." is there anyway to restore the menu to like it was when I first installed Fedora?

    Thanks in advance for your time and help.

    Since in the link you provided it made backups of your original menu files, you should be able to reverse the process by copying them back like this:

    Code:
    su -
    <give root password>
    cd /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules
    cp default-modules.conf-no-menu-editing default-modules.conf
    Code:
    cd ~/.gnome2/vfolders
    cp  /etc/X11/desktop-menus/applications.vfolder-info applications.menu
