Hmm, got this message but not the last one below. I am guessing my server
is just too slow. I did get  a faster computer today and will try it
tomorrow. Anyway, glad to hear at least something works. The problem with
the gnomeshell menus is they merge incorrectly. That is what moving the
merge line in the menu is for. (I left it down below so you can look for
it) this is a fairly common error in default menu config files.

This is what fixes those alphabetical layouts:
