Bug Description

Hi all,

using Gutsy 7.10 Ubuntustudio since 3 days.

Today I installed the update ubuntustudio-menu 0.5 and noticed that the main menu shows now only 2 entries: Places and System.
All other entries Applications, Internet, etc of the menu are currently not available and can not be added with the Main Menu Editor.
Problematic is that I have not found a way to open the terminal at the graphical interface

I have the same / similar problem but mine shows the "Application" menu selecting it does noting except display a 2x2 pixel item.

None of my apps are now available

Please help this is URGENT.

Without any apps all I can do is revert back to XP, (yuk!)

I also cannot get the "System | Preferences | Main Menu" programme to work again.

Please help us.

I think that the solution is to make the /etc/X11/Xsession.d/25ubuntustudio-menu script not set XDG_CONFIG_DIRS to contain ONLY it's own configuration directory. It probably should set it to also contain the default configuration directories, like this:

 export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS="${BASE_DIR}:/etc/xdg:${HOME}/.config"

I have not verified whether or not that works, but suspect that it will.
