Gutsy Applications Menu

Posting this in the hopes that it’ll be useful to someone else, because it certainly took me a long time and caused a lot of frustration.

There’s a bizarre bug that a few people, myself including, have run into when upgrading to Ubuntu’s Gutsy Gibbon release: the applications menu is blank.

Some recommended deleting ~/.config/menus/, but, in my case, this didn’t recreate it.

Here’s a tip, though: there’s an /etc/xdg/menus/ Copying it to ~/.config/menus/ fixed my problem. And now, I have an applications menu. Hurrah!
