http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I have this ridiculous issue where my desktop menu has mysteriously disappeared from my panel. Regardless of my searching around, I seem not to be able to add the desktop menu which includes shortcuts to most installed programs to the panel. However, I can still start it by right-clicking the desktop. Now, how can I get the menu back in the panel, I tried with add new items but it just isn't there. thanks, Lieven (HowTos)
