[SOLVED] Gnome 3.2 - Applications Menu empty after update

After updating all my boxes from 3.0 to 3.2, one of them got the Applications Menu wiped. The .desktop files are all there but none show up in the Menu, it's just empty.

Apart from that everything seems to work just fine, did anyone came across a similiar problem or knows a solution ? I tried to google how to regenerate the Menu but failed to find anything useful and/or gnome3 related.

Re: [SOLVED] Gnome 3.2 - Applications Menu empty after update

do you have any errors in ~/.xsession-errors?


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: [SOLVED] Gnome 3.2 - Applications Menu empty after update

I have also had this problem since the update, and just found this thread.

My problem was that I had gobject-introspection-git installed. Once I replaced that with gobject-introspection everything showed up again!

Thanks wonder for the solution, and thanks Votan for bringing it up!

Fixed after reinstalling gnome-menus. /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu was missing.
