I'm using elementary os luna.

How can i add a new category to the Applications menu !?Applications menu (Elementary OS luna

1

Add new category to pantheon applications menu :

Finally i found a way to do it.

First: create .directory file in /usr/share/desktop-directories/

and type these lines

Example /usr/share/desktop-directories/****.directory: (replace **** with the filename )

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Directory
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=???? 

(replace ???? with the new Category Name)

Then : add these lines to /etc/xdg/menus/pantheon-applications.menu

<Menu>
 <Name>????</Name>
 <Directory>****.directory</Directory>
 <Include>
   <And>
     <Category>????</Category>
   </And>
 </Include>
</Menu>

finally : edit /usr/share/applications/ app.desktop (replace app with the application name you want to add to the new category) and type Categories=????;...;...(other categories);

since Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu, maybe Alacarte is something for you.
