Bug Description

Alt+m in translated nautilus is the shortcut for the bookmarks menu, so if I hit Alt+m, it will show the bookmarks menu and
nothing else. If I hide the main bar from the view menu, I'm still not able to use the Alt+m menu so I'm stuck with out the main bar.

Ubuntu 9.10

I know that in some langage pack the alt+m is already used for an action

so if it don t work just enable your gtk accel and change the shortcut.
if you re stuck and can't make the menu bar appear again u just need to change the start_with_toolbar in your gconf editor (apps/nautilus/preferences)
yes i know it should be renamed to start_with_menubar another bug to solve ;)

in your systeme/preferences/appearance in the interface tab "can change gtk menu accel".
Now just go find the option in the menubar with your mouse stay on it, and change the accel u want just by pressing the different keys. be carreful to not mess your accels keys.

Thx for the bug report but for the moment i just can't check every langage pack so change your accel ;)

kitkat: I can't remove the accels from the main menu, I can edit the accel of copy, paste, new tab, refresh, etc., but I can't remove the accels of FIle, Edit, View, Bookmarks, etc.

I was doing it wrong: I was trying to change the accel for the Bookmarks menu instead of the accel for the Menubar. Now everything is fine.

Ok so in spanish langage pack, _Marcadores in the menubar has a common shortcut key alt+m with my show/hide menubar option. So _Marcadores =>(become) Mar_cadores. And then normally show/hide menubar should work.

langage pack affected:
  - po/ast.po
  - po/es.po
  - po/gl.po
  - po/pt.po
  - po/pt_BR.po

commited in bzr
ppa will be updated soon.
thx for a feed back on this.
