I'm using menulibre:

"An advanced menu editor that provides modern features in a clean,
easy-to-use interface. All without GNOME dependencies, so even
lightweight systems can benefit from the sanity that MenuLibre offers.
MenuLibre is your one-stop shop for menus in Linux, whether you use
GNOME, LXDE, Xfce, or Unity."
