    Editing the Lubuntu menu

    I'm running Lubuntu 10.10 and I would like a way, any way, to edit the Main Menu. No Alacarte does not work with Lubuntu unless you have Gnome installed and I do not plan on installing Gnome. Is there any other way to do this? Thanks.

    Re: Editing the Lubuntu menu

    Sorry for this thread but it's solved now, thanks to this link:

    http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Main_Menu

    Your main menu entries are divided between the two folders

    /usr/share/applications
    /home/.local/share/applications

    This definitely confused me, but finding something you don't like in there you can delete it and upon log out/log in it will be gone.

    Same goes for creating entries into the Main Menu if you wanted.

    Re: Editing the Lubuntu menu

    I find myself dealing with this other (unofficial) flavour of Ubuntu with LXDE, and also have this menu problem! I would like to add or even modify the definition of some menu short-cuts but with this way is both complicated and frightening (what if you modify something you shouldn't!?). Of course you can make a backup of the file before starting, but it would be much better to have a comprehensive graphic tool

    I have installed Lubuntu in an old machine laptop with Celeron processor and 128 MB of RAM, and is working quite well.

    There is a tool I've found recently called LxMenu Editor:

    http://lxmed.sourceforge.net/

    Not sure if it's new or not, it does a good amount of things and while it's not perfect it definitely helps.
