i have an... kinda odd problem with my cinnamon desktop.
After i added a new entry on the menu (using: right-click on the main menu-> configure -> goto menu tab -> open the menu editor) i looked at my menu again and didn't see any app of any kind on it (even the "all applications" menu is empty)
Tried to enter on the menu editor again and it doesn't work at all: doesn't show any error (visually at least, can't say the same for the console output since i don't know which program is) or shows anything on the screen
Also, installed alacarte hoping that i could do anything there. Added/Removed some items on any menu with no luck at all, looked on the ~/local/shared folder for any entry of the cinnamon menu, everything seems ok (as far as i could see)
Finally i said: i'm gonna reinstall the whole thing
$ sudo apt remove --purge cinnamon* $ rm .rf ~/.cinnamon $ sudo apt install cinnamon
the menu still the same.
Gnome-Shell works great so far (i just hope that it doesn't break aswell)
Any ideas on how i could do to get my menu back the way it was? if you guys need more information, please let me know
