Thank you for telling the directory's names.
I thought adding dialog because in this bug's page in Bugzilla, Daniel
Naber who reported this bug and Urmas said there should be dialog asking
for restart on comments.
So now should I focus on just the menu updating and not restart? And is
menu updating issue's solution related with desktop/source/deployment
directory too?
