    That doesn't appear to have done anything (I made the change in both /usr... and ~/.local...).

    Uh...Applications submenu? I don't have one. Did you mean Accessories? The Wine Windows Program Loader shows in there (not sure if it was there before), but nothing else re. Wine.

    There is NO Applications menu nor sub menu in Lubuntu or LXDE.
    You are right.

    Try this:

    Thanks! Sorry about the delay getting back, but life intervened there for a bit. Ok, I've set that in both files, but the Wine menu still doesn't appear. Strange.

    You welcome and never mind about the delay. Real Life keeps is so busy.

    I'm sorry to ask such a question but are you looking in all the menus? Accessories, etc?

    I don't like Wine and don't need to use it but I have installed it just to help you

    Code:

    When I did these two little changes in red, I got it on the list. Please check the attached screen shot.

    However, as you can see, "Wine" has its own entry anyway.

    From this thread:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1845073

    Force the regeneration of the menu by deleting the files in ~/.cache/menus/ Then restart the panel with
    Code:
    lxpanelctl restart

    Re: Menu item missing in Lubuntu

    Strange. I've made sure wine.desktop shows both those lines in red, in both locations, and I've run lxpanelctl restart as root, but still no Wine section appears...even after a reboot.

    You know, it's a shame that LXDE is so lame re. shortcuts. In Xubuntu I'd just create Desktop shortcuts to winecfg etc. and call it done, but that doesn't really work in Lubuntu.

    Have you considered to re-install Wine?

    You wouldn't call it "so lame" when LXDE makes your ancient Laptop or PC breathes new life while other DE can not. You wouldn't call it "so lame" when LXDE makes your machine runs much faster than anything else. Nothing is prefect my friend. If there is ONLY ONE "perfect" Software/OS in the world, there will be NO need to have more than 300 active Linux Distributions over there, not to mention the other OS (Windows, Mac, etc).

    Not to be harsh or rude but let's don't forget the fact that "nothing is prefect" and let's not forget the other advantages in LXDE

    LXDE, if you don't know, still not stable and version 1 still not yet released. However, it's very promising, otherwise Lubuntu wouldn't be an official variant and it wouldn't be in a better rank than Xubuntu and Kubuntu on Distrowatch

    Have you tried to copy the wine.desktop file to /home/user/desktop? That should put it on the desktop.

    Now I could remove it altogether and reinstall from scratch. I just hesitate to go back and reinstall all my Windows software again. Then again, 11.10 is only a month away--it might resolve itself with an upgrade.

    XFCE would breathe new life into a laptop like this too; it's just that LXDE does it better. Lubuntu has some very good features, but its support for shortcuts is--yes--lame by comparison with the other lightweight distro I use. I'm not unhappy with Lubuntu overall; I'm just pointing out one of its shortcomings (as I see them).

    Not forgotten. I'm not about to toss LXDE; I'm just carping about something that was bothering me at the time.
