Applications menu does not get populated with recently installed apps using apt

Applications menu doesnt get populated with recently installed app using apt.

For example, after installing Firefox using apt, its shortcut does not appear immediately in the applications main menu. It only appeared there after I rebooted (maybe logging off also does the job).
A “refresh menu” action has to be triggered somehow after installations.

Please report this as a bug against gnome-menus


ubuntu-bug gnome-menus

Sorry, but you mean in github?

Running that command will report to launchpad.


I’ve just been notified that the fix has just been released to 18.04 users. So the fix should rollout to everyone over the next few days.
