KDE Menu Editor will not save.

Menu changes could not be saved because of the following problem:

Could not write to /home/soylent/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu

The file doesn't exist, and creating it does not solve the problem, so it seems to me that KDE is looking to save the wrong file for some reason, because for programs that have scripts for entering into the menu, they have no problem doing this.  So, how do I make KDE point to the correct menu file?  What is the correct menu file?

The path you referenced looks right to me.
On my system it is:

~/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu

The error msg said it couldn't "write".
What are your perms??

Re: KDE Menu Editor will not save.

Hey, thanks a ton for helping.  I think you're right:



I wasn't able to run it as root either, so I put in:

xhost +localhost
ls -l

-rw-r--r--  1 root root 121

and it run as root.  I don't know what 'xhost +localhost' does.  Ha, ha, dumb to issue a command and not know what it does. 

I assume the whole problem was there NO permissions for it.  Now I need to know what permissions it needs/best way to set them.

Bad:

Even if I do chmod 777 on the file or its directory, it can only be edited by root.

Okay here it is, I'm such a dumbass:

chmod 755

chown [user]
