Subject: Re: [K12OSN] Edit Gnome menu
The gnome menu system is built with gnome-vfs, and generated from the
*.desktop files in /usr/share/applications. To edit it log in as root,
or run nautilus as root.
go the url
This will give you a nautilus view of the applications menu. You can
rearrange it by drag-n-drop. I haven't checked gnome 2.4 (what's in
k12ltsp 4) but it works for gnome 2.6. Gnome 2.6 has a number of new
"lock down" features that are extremely useful in a lab environment.
Now if gconf would only get group level control it would be gold.
