    You should be able to edit them in manually.
    But make sure you have re-booted since the application was installed.

    I don't use xfce, so I can't say but kde is right click to get menu-editor
    Gnome is different
    I expect xfce will be equally so.

    me too

    right click refers to a default menu file in xfce
    but nothing leading to a menu editor or file location
    remember seeing the file ages ago, looked like duck soup
    but i'll try

    where's that darn menu file i guess


    thx

    There will be someone with xfce that can answer that for you.
    In the mean time you can just launch them from a terminal

    looks like a menu layout only
    probably the individual program that doesn't fit in

    thanks for the response

    This is normal for these 2 apps. imagemagick ist a collection of CLI tools and evince doesn't normally appear in menus :


    Code:
    cat /usr/share/applications/evince.desktop 
    
    [Desktop Entry]
    X-SuSE-translate=true
    DocPath=evince
    Name=Evince
    GenericName=Document Viewer
    Comment=View multi-page documents
    TryExec=evince
    Exec=evince %U
    StartupNotify=true
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Icon=evince
    NoDisplay=true

    I've had the full imagemagick program on other computers, wanted to learn
    how to use it.

    And evince will open if configured for that file type then, interesting !


    thx for your response,
