            Bug ID: 15905
           Summary: How can I get rid of entries in MenuLibre
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Xfce4-panel
           Version: 4.12.0
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
          Assignee: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
          Reporter: Adalbert.Hanssen at gmx.de
  Target Milestone: Panel 4.14

This bug report pertains to xfce4-panel 4.12.0 (Xfce 4.12) and Menulibre
version 2.1.3. I already tried to install a newer version of xfce4 and related
stuff, but that does not work for me because there is no prepared package for
Xubuntu 16.04.6 LTS. Trying to compile everything from the published sources
led me into very long, possibly infinite regressions of missing or outdated
libraries. I have seen that a similar situation will be present once I switch
to Xubuntu 18.04. If my complaints are fixed with xfce4 version 4.14, then at
least for that a ppa for xfce4 and all its related applications (Catfish,
MenuLibre, Thunar,and the like) should be provided for users of supported LTS
versions of Xubuntu.

I am testing LibreOffice and in doing so, starters for 5 different versions of
LibreOffice have accumulated in my start menu>Büro (I use the German version).

I have changed the starter of LibreOfficeDev6.4 Writer to use an alias rather
than a start command like libreofficedev6.4 --writer %U.

Unfortunately my trial did not work as expected so I reverted its entry to its
previous state using Menulibre. If I call Menulibre again, it shows me the
reverted version of the command to start libreofficedev6.4.

However, if I click on libreofficedev6.4 in the Büro part of the start menu,
still the intermediate version after my initial change is invoked and that one
does not work! This is even true after a complete reboot.

Further I wanted to delete all the starters for Libreoffeicedev6.4 hoping that
new ones are created when I install a new master version, like the other
siblings of libreoffice were automatically created during the step sudo dpkg -i
*.deb. But that did not work: I was unable to delete entries: in the Büro
section, the waste bin is greyed out when I am on any of the starter entries
for LibreOfficeDev6.4.  

Where do all these settings for starters, menus and the like reside? Where is
tha outlay description for those files?
