I tried doing the following to add a new category named "Electronics" in Whisker Menu on Linux Mint 17.1 with Xfce 4.10.1:
- I added this text to
~/.config/menus/xfce-applications.menujust after rest of entries for categories
<Menu> <Name>Electronics</Name> <Directory>xfce-electronics.directory</Directory> <Layout> <Merge type="menus" /> <Filename>geda-gattrib.desktop</Filename> <Merge type="files" /> </Layout> </Menu>
down in the file (with other similar entries).
Then, I added
~/.config/menus/applications.menualong with similar entries.
Last, I made a new file named
~/.local/share/desktop-directories/xfce-electronics.directoryand added wrote the following to it:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Directory Icon=file-manager Name=Electronics Comment=
However, I am not seeing a new category in either Whisker Menu or Alacarte or Menulibre (menu editors). Is there something else to be done that I missed?
