Unhappy gnome menus edit

The problem lies the icons are pointing to a bum location, but under gnome I cannot right click and edit properties, whats up with that? Under KDE no problem?

Try running, for example,

oowriter

(or,

openoffice.org-1.9 -writer

if you are running the beta)

from a terminal window and seeing if there is any diagnostic printed there.

Sorry carney, misunderstood your problem.

I do not know Gnome very well, but is it possible

/usr/share/applications/

can be of interest?

You can't right-click on the icon, and under "Properties" change "Command" to point to the correct location to run the program(s)? Just trying to understand the situation here...

I have segmentation fault on OpenOffice.org 1.9. on my system. That issue is pending since 1.9.93 version.
