I copied the Exec path and ran it in a terminal, that worked. the spyder3.desktop item was then copied to /usr/share/applications which I understood to be the place to be for all menu items (I am still quite a newbie so please correct me if I am wrong).
The icon resides in the place specified. Yet when I open the menu, it does not exist anywhere and nether can be found. When I edit the menu with Mozo, the Spyder menu is present, it is even checked, but... still doesn't show in the menu. Next step was to create manually a Spyder menu item via Mozo. I checked the path, the new menu item is checked, it is in the programming folder, but does not appear in the menu. However, this time it popped up in the search, so I could attach it to the panel.
Why is Spyder avoiding to be accepted in the warm family of menu items? And why does it appear in Mozo, checked and all that, but not in the menu?
