Synaptic missing from menu

Bug Description

Updated to 12.10.4 in xubuntu-default-settings.

Many items previously in System menu - now in Settings Manager (looks good)

However Synaptic now does not appear in any menu at all.

I'd expect to see it in System menu once installed manually, given that it's removed from the seed but is still in repositories

Editing menu with alacarte - go to System - Synaptic is listed but disabled. Clicking to re-enable it's position does not succeed - tick appears and then disappears.

Yep, side effect of the settings' manager reorganization. We tested on irc and fixes it. I'll upload later.

Hi there!

The same thing seems to happen with nvidia-settings. Within the menu editor, the link is written in italics, and whenever I check the option to include nvidia-settings in the system menu, it disappears again. Is this the same bug?

nvidia-settings should be in Settings Manager
