so I was trying to add global menu support for Eclipse from this short fix from here and it worked. I tried adding another application into that by typing the application in there as well and it didn't work, so I removed it.

Since then, I can't run a lot of applications after a restart. They all say Segmentation fault (core dump).

Here is a core dump file from one application Synergy:

This only seems to be happening to my user account though. Other accounts and root can start up fine..

I would really appreciate the help!

Try re-installing the appmenu-gtk package:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall appmenu-gtk

I hope this works.

Worked great! I didn't know the package it belonged to before. :) – jonalmeida Jun 22 '12 at 19:04
You can find out which package a file belongs to using dpkg -S /path/to/file. If the file isn't installed (e.g. you know you need a certain development header file or a library), you can install the utility apt-file. – Michael Wild Jun 24 '12 at 19:28
Thanks again :) – jonalmeida Jun 26 '12 at 21:21
