[Solved] Desktop menu options are flipped rtl instead of ltr

As you can see, the text in the menu seems to flow right to left. How do I fix this?

Is everything okay with your locale?

Locale looks fine (I think):

➜ locale
LANG=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_CA.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_TIME=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE="en_CA.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_MESSAGES="en_CA.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_NAME=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_ADDRESS=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_TELEPHONE=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_MEASUREMENT=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION=en_CA.UTF-8
LC_ALL=

gtk3 settings then? Look at ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini and ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css.

Does this just happen on the desktop or does it also happen with other elements in Xfce?

Just happens when right-clicking on the desktop.

~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

[Settings]
gtk-theme-name=Arc-Dark
gtk-icon-theme-name=Sardi-Arc
gtk-font-name=Noto Sans 11
gtk-cursor-theme-name=Bibata-Modern-Ice
gtk-cursor-theme-size=0
gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS
gtk-toolbar-icon-size=GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR
gtk-button-images=1
gtk-menu-images=1
gtk-enable-event-sounds=0
gtk-enable-input-feedback-sounds=0
gtk-xft-antialias=1
gtk-xft-hinting=1
gtk-xft-hintstyle=hintslight
gtk-xft-rgba=rgb

~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

/*
https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/theming
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/chap-css-overview.html
*/

wnck-pager {
	background-color: transparent;
}

wnck-pager:selected {
	background-color: lighter(@selected_bg_color);
}

#sn-button {
	background-color: darker(@selected_bg_color);
}

#xfce4-clipman-plugin {
}

.xfce4-panel.panel {
	background-color: mix(@selected_bg_color, #000000, 0.7);
}

#whiskermenu-button image {
}

#whiskermenu-window {
}

EDIT

I've tried restarting everything as suggested here

Also is ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini supposed to reflect the settings from xfce? I'm asking because gtk-theme-name, gtk-icon-name, and gtk-font-name do not match what my actual themes are set to.
