My "comeback" post after a wee hiatus: http://wp.me/pCEQi-3R. Very minor issue, slowly but surely wins the race ;).

Last night I made a tutorial on this very thing.  I used your previous tutorial on 3.1.1 as my reference.  I ended up using the Red-Hat desktop integration file.  I had the same problem when using the 'refresh function' of 'Menu Update' but when I used "Install from Scratch" it worked just fine.
Here is the tut.

Nice one, Ken! :) In German there's an idiom "Zwei Dumme, ein Gedanke" ("Two stupids, one thought", not meant derogatively though, it's used when two people have the same thought/idea at the same time).

Will link to your vid from the blog.

How about "Great minds think alike"?
I was just in Germany Bonn actually.  Have you ever noticed people in Bonn have a thing for Haribo candies? I was there for a wedding and they had a free bar. So I decided to try as many different German Beers as possible.  Needless to say I woke up with little memory of the night and a strong feeling that free bars should be illegal.

Yea, much better...  :)
Never been to Bonn actually. "Ich bin ein Berliner", as good ole JFK said (actually my mum was there when he said that). From here Bonn always was this small town that was made capital of the old Federal Republic of Germany by some villagers, and by pure chance. :D Glad you enjoyed it ;D. Oh, and I think most Germans have a thing about Haribos. In fact, I'll have a bag of Vampires later on (candy gum + licorice, yummy).
