    update-menus problem: duplicate menu entries

    Ive sucessfully installed Knoppix 3.4 on my hd.
    However, each time I install a new program, or when i run update-menus from the console, I get a duplicate menu entry for almost every program.

    Does anyone know a solution for this??

    I have reinstalled Knoppix on my hd and still get the same problem... Double menu entries almost everywhere! I think it happened after i installed Crossover Office, but dont know for sure. Anyone with the same problem??

    You most probably started update-menus as local user ...

    mv .local .local-dontuse

    should help.

    Clearing Duplicate Menu Items

    I also ran update-menus as the local user and it resulted in duplicate menu items. How do I clear out the duplicates?

    Thanks,
