View Full Version : [xfce] I refuse to believe I can't edit the Xfce menu

Everywhere I search is full of people saying that it's impossible to edit the xfce menu. How could this be?! Somewhere on my machine is a file that maps the label "Disc Usage Analyzer" to "baobab". I must locate this file and destroy it! Sadly, I just can't find this mapping file for the life of me. Where could it be hiding?!

/usr/share/applications holds the menu items, you can edit them with a text editor as root.

to remove from menu add-> NoDisplay=true
Categories=* is where it go's in the menu

it's actually very simple.
