Debian 9 MATE menu crashed & now won't show installed apps

Postby dwitten » 2018-11-30 16:09

Hi All, I'm running MATE on debian 9 and, while editing a menu item in the menu bar, it seemed to crash and now the menu bar will not show any installed apps
When I go into my system menu and click on "Look & Feel" > Main Menu, a window opens for about 1/4 of a second, then disappears
I just installed alacarte, and it sees/shows the apps fine..

Any thoughts on how to restore the Main Menu would be appreciated

I've tried reinstalling the desktop environment & extras...no luck there

What did you do before the crash?

Anything in ~/.xsession-errors?
