I just installed Red Hat 9.0 with Gnome 2.0 and I'm wondering how I can add programs to the main menu? There doesn't seem to be any menu editor. I'm a novice and would greatly appreciate step-by-step directions on how to add a shortcut for a program in the main menu.

Thanks,
Jerry

 For some unknown reason in RedHat 8 and 9 menu editing in Gnome DE is disabled by default .  To enable it:
 (type as root in terminal window)
   cd /etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules                      
   mv      default-modules.conf        default-modules.conf.without-menu-editing
   cp       default-modules.conf.with-menu-editing            default-modules.conf

   Next time you start Gnome DE you should be able to edit the applications
menu by either normal method: right-click on the menu item you want to edit,
or type in the Nautilus location/address bar    applications:///    
 and  rearrange things there.
