Reading the comments in "/etc/xdg/menus/mate-applications.menu", it looks like files in "/etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/" are suposed to be merged with the menu.

Code: Select all
  <!-- Read in overrides and child menus from applications-merged/ -->

However, the files there, one added by Wine to make a Wine submenu and one added by me to add a PlayOnLinux submenu, don't seem to be merged with the menu. So what is that directory for? And where do I find the directory that actually merges with the menu?

Thanks for the help!

hi, I'm a gentoo user using cinnamon. I encounter the same problem.

This is my .menu file:
Code: Select all
[fpemud@fpemud-workstation /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged]$ cat fvm-applications.menu
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
    <Name>Virtual Machines</Name>

This is my .directory file:
Code: Select all
[fpemud@fpemud-workstation /usr/share/desktop-directories]$ cat fvm-virtualmachines.directory
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Virtual Machines
Comment=Virtual Machines

This is my .desktop file:
Code: Select all
[fpemud@fpemud-workstation ~/.local/share/applications]$ cat fvm_temp.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Virtual Machine - temp
Exec=fpemud-virtmanager start temp
TryExec=fpemud-virtmanager start temp

according to spec, with these 3 files, I should see a "Virtual Machines" menu and a "Virtual Machine - temp" program in the application menu.
But there's nothing. Anyone can help?
