Cannot remove items from Applications Menu Gnome 3 / Fedora 15
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 19, 2011
Hello, today I have installed Fedora 15 with the new Gnome 3. I have downloaded and installed all the updates as well.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to remove items from the Applications menu. I have installed alacarte (aka the "Main Menu" settings program), which is the typical suggestion when people ask about this, but even if I uncheck items in alacarte they still appear in the Applications menu.
I also read somewhere that you can delete items from ~/.local/share/applications but there are only three items in there for me (and about 20 items I want to remove from the Applications menu).
Finally, I found this thread on another forum, but following those steps only broke things more.
Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!
[SOLVED] Windows 8, after installation, removed my grub menu, How to I get back to Fedora 18?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 20, 2013
Hello. I just installed Windows 8. I want to change to my other OS Fedora 18. My grub menu does not show up when I restart anymore. I boot directly into Windows 8. How do I get into Fedora 18?
I checked to see if my Fedora 18 partition deleted. It is still there. Searching on bing, reinserting the Fedora 18 boot cd was mentioned a lot but I do not have it. I do have blank cds though. They are 700mb cd-r.
Grub Menu does not show Fedora
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 27, 2012
This never happened before. I always dual boot Ubuntu and Fedora and use Grub from Ubuntu. I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04 amd_64.
Grub menu does not detect list Fedora installation. Fedora grub is installed to its own / partition.
11.10 (My previous install of Ubuntu) did not have any such problem. Grub actually detects other linux os even when grub from those distros is not installed. On my friend's desktop too there is same issue, however here other OS like windows and linux mint are detected but not fedora.
Why the menu bar not working for NIS account with Fedora
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2004
If I use any local user account, after I issue 'startx' command, the menu bar on the lower left corner (the manu bar with logoff items) works fine. However, if I log on as an NIS user and then issue the 'startx' command, no menu list shown up when I click the redhat icon on the lower left corner manu bar. Does any one has any hint to fix the problem? Thanks.
Fedora doesnt show on boot menu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 13, 2012
Hello! I have been reading for over two hours how to get fedora to show up boot menu.
http://paste.ubuntu.com/1277445/ Here is my paste from boot-repair.
SDA is ssd (120g) and SDB is hdd (500g) which i have been formatted badly. If anyone could help me to get fedora showing on boot menu with windows and ubuntu, it would be great
And if someone can tell me how i can rename those partitions. I think that sdb3 and sdb is fedora. How i can confirm it?
[SOLVED] Fedora 16 KDE menu icon has disappeared
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 15, 2012
I'm using KDE in Fedora 16 and it has been working okay. But now my menu icon is gone. All the rest are there except the menu, the one that's always
on the left side, looks like a lowercase "f". The one you right click on to edit the menu or left click to raise the menu. I can't recall doing any
changes to the panel. I have no idea what might have caused this. How can I restore the menu icon? Or, what is the command to bring up the menu? Or,
what is the command to bring up the program to edit the menu? Maybe I can restore the menu icon from that? Thanks ahead of time.
Fedora 13 in Grub menu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 28, 2010
Hi, during the fedora install, I told it to resize my Ubuntu install. This worked without a problem. After that, I booted up into Fedora and finished the install. I reinstalled Grub2 via live cd (usb), and booted back up to Ubuntu. Now, I ran
sudo update-grub && sudo update-grub2
and rebooted. Fedora 13 wasn't in the menu, so should I manually add it? If so, how? Thanks.

Fedora 17 custom entry does not show up in grub menu.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2012
I'm not sure whether this is the correct area for this question, however:--
I have a Microsoft partition on my disk which I would like to access, to see whether there is anything worth using.
I want to add a M$ entry to the grub menu, for which I think I have the correct details. I have amended /boot/grub/menu.lst, the entries in /boot/grub/grub.conf and /etc/grub.conf mirror menu.lst. However, when I turn on the computer, grub only displays the standard options, without my one.
Here is grub.conf:--
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
# initrd /boot/initrd-[generic-]version.img
Installed Fedora as dual boot but Grub boot menu is not showing up
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2009
Back when Fedora 8 was fairly new, I installed it on one of my computers and I had this same problem. I fixed it back then, but remember very little of what I did. I know that the problem turned out to be that the boot menu was essentially set to turn off far too quickly (i.e., instantaneously). However, since the computer boots right into Windows, I'm not sure how to edit the grub loader so that I see the menu and have the opportunity to pick an OS. Can someone help me? I know this is solvable, and it can't be too complicated since a complete newbie like myself managed it once before.
Edit: Should have mentioned I'm using Win XP. Not sure which build of Fedora, though. Probably 8 or 9, as I downloaded it several months ago.
