"Add Applications" Missing

Bony Limas
Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 5.10 and new to it. I don't know what I did but the
"add applications" menu is missing from the applications menu.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cheers,

bony

/usr/bin/gksudo /usr/bin/gnome-app-install

That's what it runs. You'd need to edit the menu and re-add this to the
menu. To do so, use the application "smeg."

Right-click on the applications menu and choose "Edit Menus", then add
it.

I have recently tried previous fix for this and found the following:

Use synaptic to search for 2 packages, gnome-app-install and gksudo. In
my case gksudo was installed, however gnome-app-install wasn't. I
selected the missing package and installed it through Synaptic. Once
installed I checked the Applications menu and found the Add
Applications entry. If this doesn't work, use SMEG to create the entry
outlined in the previous posts

Good Luck,
