I'm putting shortcuts in my start menu for my favorite TV shows but can't get them to show up under Multimedia, they will only go under Other. Here is a sample .desktop file:
I'd really like to be able to make my own categories, but Multimedia would work just as well.
Should work if you spell 'Category' correctly.
Edit: To create your own categories:
cp /etc/xdg/xfce4/desktop/xfce-registered-categories.xml .config/xfce4/desktop/ gedit .config/xfce4/desktop/xfce-registered-categories.xml
One thing I have learned since using Linux is to always check spelling and syntax. At the end of the day there is a test.
Still doesn't work. I fixed catEgory, logged out and logged back in and it is still in Other. I took the category names from some other program in Multimedia. Here is that file:
I also tried making my own category with
<category name="TVshows" replace="TV Shows" />
at the end of ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/xfce-registered-categories.xml and updated South Park to
but South Park stays in Other and there is no TV Shows in my menu. Also something is wrong with the icon, but I'm not too worried about that now.
Change Category to Categories. Also .ico is not a valid format. Use the gimp or gthumb to convert it to .png.
