HPR - Ep0345: Editing the auto-generated menu in Linux

1 post in this topic

Locations

Menu files (requires root to edit)

/usr/shar/applications

Icon files

/usr/share/pixmaps

/usr/share/icons/foo

Edit files in plain text editor like GEdit

Ellements pointed out in episode (there are plenty more, they vary per app, & distro)

Name : the name it will display on the menu (may need to change Name[foo] to reflect your language)

Language : speaks for itself

Comment : the rollover text

Exec : the command it will execute when clicked

Icon : the path to the icon shown in the menu

OnlyShowIn : useful when trying to find why an application may not be showing the menu

Terminal : runs the command in a terminal

Categories : (I think) this is the submenu groups where it'll appear on the menu

Changes sometimes take a little while to update, restarting X or rebooting will force it to re-read that folder and apply the changes.

XCFE Tip

Right click to edit menu. Click on something like a separator, move it up, then down to it's original place. Save.
