edit menu on xfce

Postby geezuslvr on Thu Sep 06, 2012 1:20 pm

Using Mint xfce - the newest, greatest one.

I installed sgt-puzzles and I cant find them anywhere on the menu. I did find them /usr/games. What I would like to know is how can i edit the start menu under Start>Games>Sgt-Puzzles>then all the games?

Thanks for your input :roll:

http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/customize-menu
Shows how to do it manually and also mentions LXMenuEditor which did not work for me

alacarte does have some functionality in Xfce. I use it to turn off system management stuff that appears in the Preferences section (Synaptic, Users and Groups, etc).

You have to install it without recommends or it will try to drag in most of GNOME though :lol:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends alacarte

Agree that Alacarte is worth a try.
Test driving Mint 17.1 Cinnamon via Persistent Live USB on a W7 Lenovo desktop with peripherals, and on a W10tp Dell laptop. Dual booting Mint 16 XFCE with W7 on an Acer netbook, testing Live M17 XFCE.
