    Cool Can't find file-roller in xubuntu applications menu!

    I can't, for the life of me, find file-roller (aka 'Archive Manager') in xubuntu's Applications menu. I surely have it; it is the default application for opening archives, I can invoke it from the terminal but I can't just... run it from the Applications drop-down.

    I even tried the Application Finder with no luck using the keywords file-roller, archive, file, roller, .zip. .tar, etc. No luck.

    Can anyone else find it on their Applications dropdown menu? Or at least tell me that they can't find it either?

    I'm curious if I have some configuration glitch, or if this is a bug, or maybe there's just something in the water here.

    By default, it's not displayed. To display it in the menu, edit the file /usr/share/applications/file-roller.desktop (as root):
    Code:
    sudo mousepad /usr/share/applications/file-roller.desktop
    and change the line:
    Code:
    NoDisplay=true
    to read:
    Code:
    NoDisplay=false
