Can you paste the file that you created here so I can drop it in my own menu directory and see if it shows up?

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by Antoine Martin

Also, please specify exactly which directory you dropped it into, and whether you have tried to restart the server to see if that makes it pick it up.

(restarting the server should not affect your existing sessions)

Hi! Sorry for my English.
My both computers (local and remote) have Ubuntu Lucid.
1) On remote I do right click on desktop and choose 'create a launcher'
2) My launcher is in attachment (it is simple .desktop file)
3) Than Menu > System > Preferences > Main menus. It is the program to manage main menus items
4) And just drag'n'drop my desktop shortcut in some place in the applications menu in the programs window
5) Restarting servers. Reconnecting. But new menu item doesn't shown up in WinSwitch? menu (Start Application menu)

Custom user shortcuts are placed in ~/.local/share/applications/ directory but your program seems to pass just /usr/share/applications/ directory.

Hmm, that's odd, the code is meant to be loading from both locations and watch for changes to both directories (and reload all menus when changes are made).
I will make some tests and get back to you.

And how about .desktop files not from menus?
It will be very nice to add in WinSwitch? Start Application menu launchers from desktop or from other places manually.

Maybe this is what you are looking for: FAQ: howto customize menus?

Note that if files are present in this directory, WinSwitch will use only that and ignore /usr[/local]/share/applications. So you may want to copy (or softlink) your existing .desktop files there first.
