OS: Zenwalk Gnu/Linux version 3.0
XFCE version: xfce-188.8.131.52
GCC version: gcc-3.4.6
Glibc version: glibc-2.3.6
Linux Kernel: kernel-184.108.40.206
I have edited line number 80 of the file /etc/X11/xdg/xfce4/menu.xml
to enable the "multilevel" autogenerated system menu feature.
In greater detail, I have edited the line:
<include type="system" style="simple" unique="true"/>
<include type="system" style="multilevel" unique="true"/>
This works beautifully and as expected except for one menu category,
"ActionGames". this is very important to me and the community as I
maintain and develop Zenwalk Linux's gaming website/community at
To attempt to solve the problem before requesting help, I have rebuilt
several game packages assuring that the *.desktop files are built in
accordance with the latest freedesktop.org "Desktop Entry
Specifications Version 0.9.6",
lists the following available game sub-categories:
Here is an example of a desktop file I have built for the BZFlag game package:
Comment=A free multiplayer 3D tank battle game
Several packages fall into the "ActionGame" category but for a reason
unbeknownst to me, this one category is not visible and the games
menus are placed in the main "Game" menu category. Other categories
such as "KidsGame" and "CardGame" work as expected.
Can you confirm this bug or direct me to where I may edit some XFCE
config to resolve this?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
