Gnome Applications Menu Disappears

Not many people have this issues, but I've have had this happen to me 4 times already and each time I forget what file I need to restore from. This issue usually happens when I update gnome in Gentoo. 

When the applications menu becomes empty all you need to do is:

# cd /etc/xdg/menus
# cp cp gnome-applications.menu applications.menu

 

Then BAM! We're back in business.
