Tip of the week 4

Simply edit your Gnome 3 menu with Alacarte

Unfortunately Gnome doesn't provide a simple and well documented way to add/modify a menu entry, however Alacarte is a great tool for that.


On Fedora (Alacarte is also available in many distro) :

natjohan# yum install alacarte

To get it works on Fedora (I just tested it on F17), you have to edit /lib/python2.7/site-packages/Alacarte/ and replace by and save it before launch Alacarte


Now you can add/modify/delete your menu entries with Alacarte (start it with Activities -> Applications or with Alt+f2 -> Alacarte)

Note : You can change icon by clicking on the little picture on the left
