Hi Dave,

Are you running the 'stock' 9.3 GNOME setup or the 'supplementary' branch?

I'm working in my 'daily' 10.0 system and am extra busy, today, or I'd boot to
my 9.3 GNOME desktop to see if it refreshes my memory. I seem to recall it
being a hassle to uncover ;-) *but* I also have a vague recollection of it
being fairly simple once discerned.

Weren't the menu systems in KDE and GNOME (and the other DEs) in the process
of being brought under a single system or standard circa 9.3 to ease
administration? (Heck! I've forgotten the acronym!!) If you edit something in
your KDE menu (using the menu editor in the YaST/KDE Control Center editor)
isn't that change reflected in your GNOME menu the next time you log in
(after restarting X & gdm)? Or was that dream I was having back then? ;-)
