I have an application menu that we've been using for a few
years now under KDE 2.2.2 on about a hundred RH7.*-based systems.
It's just a tree under /etc/X11/applnk, like this:
| |-- InstantMessaging
| |-- Mail
| `-- News
..... and so on.
Each directory has a .directory file, giving the name. Within the directories
are *.desktop files. I'd like to take this tree, update it for
FC2, and use it as part of a new standard configuration for our department.
My original thought was to edit /etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu
so that it only contained the following:
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
I thought that "LegacyDir" would do the right thing, and create the
desired menu tree. Unfortunately, what I end up with is a start menu
with no aplications at all.
Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
Does the menu standard allow for "Legacy-only" menus?
Thanks in advance,
