[Bug 663994] Re: Upon applying profile, entire Application menu unavailable


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 413728 ***

Hello David,

I just uploaded a backport version of edubuntu-menueditor in 

The package should be available for lucid soon. it contain a few fixes.

To work around the games menu problem, you can open the file /etc
/edubuntu-menueditor/<menu name>/xdg/menus/applications.menu and under
the <Name>Games</Name> simply add <Deleted/>. This way the games menu
will be deleted.

This is what it should look like.
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
  <MergeFile type="parent">/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu</MergeFile>

Upon applying profile, entire Application menu unavailable

Bug description:

I'm trying menueditor and not getting expected results.  With Menueditor I open "Applications" and un-check 'games' and save it as TestMenu.

Then I open profilemanager, import the profile, and assign a group to TestMenu and save it.

Then I log in as a user of the group assigned to that profile.  When I click on "Application" menu instead of seeing the dropdown--without games--I see nothing, the menu won't drop down.  The Places and System menu work as expected.

I thought I might have unchecked the whole Application menu and checked that out but it was still checked.  The only thing unchecked was  "games" submenu.
