fixed in MEPIS 3.3.1 and upper versions.

With the KDE 3.3 build, every time you make a menu change, once you reboot, your change is gone.

Here's how to fix this problem:

  • Edit /etc/menu-methods/menu-xdg file (you have to be root, right-click on desktop -> run command: "kdesu kwrite" -> open the file) and look for the following line:
prerun = "rm -rf " prefix() "/*";
  • Comment out this line (put the # sign in front of the line)
 #prerun = "rm -rf " prefix() "/*";
  • Save the file.

Now when you make your menu changes, they will stay.
