Thread: LXDE menu items are not there

  1. #1

    Default LXDE menu items are not there

    I have installed lxde and It seems to work fine but the menu is empty, although the items are in /usr/share/applications
    I'm using the standar repos+packman

    Sorry if this is teaching grandmother to suck eggs but did you install LXDE or the LXDE Pattern? The Pattern downloads a lot more than LXDE.

    In LXQt the application launcher is a separate widget that needs to be added to the panel It may be worth trying right clicking on the Panel to see if there is a Configure Panel option which allows you to add an application launcher.
