Hi everyone,
Here is a little application that will help users reset Linux Lite 3.x series Menu.


Whisker Menu Restore will restore shortcuts, applications names and the default Whisker Menu layout in Linux Lite. In the process, it also fixes the bug where users are unable to remove multiple entries from the Whisker menu after uninstalling applications such as libreoffice, simple-scan and others. It also allow users to preserve custom preferences such as Favorites, Recently Used items, Background Opacity, Items and Category icons size, menu hierarchy, menu icon, menu title and even the menu width an height.





To install Whisker Menu Restore, from Terminal:


Code: [Select]
# Add Unlockforus repository:
echo "deb https://cdn.unlockforus.com/repository/dists/xenial/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unlockforus-xenial.list


# And add the PGP key:
curl -s https://cdn.unlockforus.com/repository/keyFile | sudo apt-key add -


#Install Whisker Menu Restore:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install whisker-restore-lite -y


Your feedback is appreciated :)


Cheers all!

Yes, ditto, thank you, sir, for this. Haven't run into this problem yet, but now I won't have to worry about
how to fix it when (or if) I do. Have switched my other computer to Linux Lite, too. I am all in.   ;D

Thanks guys,


I may add options to preserve some other settings in a later update. For now, it does what it needs to do :)
