I've tried adding entries to the desktop in 4.6, based on http://wiki.xfce.org/howto/customize-menu - indeed there were already files in .local/share/applications from 4.4.
When I restart xfdesktop (xfdesktop --reload doesn't work), instead of showing up on the top above the applications (i.e. near File Manager and Web Browser), it shows up mixed in with the menu (i.e. "E-mail" shows up between "Development" and "Games submenus.) Is there any way to get it to show up on the top?
I've added an entry with categories
like the other top-level applications, but they still do not show up after restarting xfdesktop (retsart option doesn't work, so I have to kill it and it restarts by itself).
I don't think the menu is being cached, because if I temporarily remove the existing desktop items and restart xfdektop, they disappear. But it just won't seem to let me add new ones. Any advice?
