Description CSLX 2019-10-17 09:27:52 UTC

When you open KDE's menu editor, and then you try to save changes (either adding or removing entries). there is an error when saving:

#"No fue posible guardar los cambios al menú debido al siguiente problema:
No se pudo escribir en /home/cslx/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu"

#"It is not possible to save changes in menu due to the following problem:
could not write: /home/cslx/.config/menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu"

I followed the route but seems not to exist in ArchLinux based system directory, and tried creating the route but gave same error anyway.

Linux/KDE Plasma: ARCH Linux

Create directory when saving the menu file

Commit 0bf70655 ported kmenuedit away from KStandardDirs.
But unlike KStandardDirs, QStandardPaths doesn't guarantee that the
target directory actually exists, therefore saving the menu file failed
if ~/.config/menus/ wasn't there already.
