Mint Mate Edit menu doesn't work

Scenario

You try to edit the Mate menu but nothing happens, trying both from the control center and with right click on the menu button.

Solution

The problem lies in the ~/.config/menu that for some reasons change ownership to root. You only have to reverse the permission to the normal user

sudo chown ~/.config/menu `whoami`:`whoami`

Shouldn't work, retry with

sudo chown -R ~/.config/menu `whoami`:`whoami`

For non-experts: `whoami` is written between backticks: don't use apostrophe for that! On the US and UK Keyboards is on the left of the 1 key.

For italian users: su tastiera italiana si fa con ALTGR + ' (that's why I changed nation! ^_^ )
