    polkit-gnome-authorization not showing up in Xfce menu

    Installed Xubuntu Hardy beta, now fully upgraded.

    Reading the release notes for Xubuntu, I see reference to an application "Authorizations" (really polkit-gnome-authorization) that should be showing up in the Xfce/System menu. But it's not there.

    I can find it and run it using Xfce4 Appfinder. But why isn't it in the menu? I did restart this machine several times earlier this week, and have been updating daily for weeks.

    Are the Xfce menu items generated by the presence of .desktop files?

    Running $ locate polkit-gnome | grep desktop

    This isn't a big deal--but in general I'd like to know how to make items show up in the menu when they fail to do so automatically.

    Xubuntu seems to always been suffering from missing menu entries, lets keep in mind that the PolicyKit integration is a new feature.

    But... its also displayed in the xubuntu site as being located under "Applications / System / Authorizations interface" so it can be frustrating for new (and old ) xubuntu users.

    One way to fix this and other menu issues is trying out with Menu Maker , but again, it would be great to have all the main features included in the menus by default.

    Fix released:
