Yes I know (and I got the message), but I still like fishing.

I ran into the last issue again, so now I can document for others that follow if anyone else is reading this stuff.

In the file, /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/warron.menu, you have to ensure that the Name XML tag's value matches the name of the folder you want to see under the Gnome "Applications" Menu structure:

The line <Name></Name> field should be named what you want the folder to be, so in my most recent case, I wanted a folder called CustomFirefoxes, so I changed:

Code: Select all

<Menu> <!--app -->
<Name>app</Name>
<Directory>warron.directory</Directory>
To look like this specifically:

Code: Select all

<Menu> <!--app -->
<Name>CustomFirefoxes</Name>
<Directory>warron.directory</Directory>
