hi barry, it's still not fully working. i tested my two examples again and openshot (from the ppm) did install to the multimedia section, whilst deadbeef (from a standalone .deb) didn't. the deadbeef.desktop file was changed from [code]Categories=AudioVideo;Player;GTK;[/code] to [code]Categories=Player[/code]

"666philb, Are you sure that deadbeef is not in the Multimedia menu? It should be, "Categories=Player" will cause it to be in the Multimedia menu. Refer: /etc/xdg/menus/hierarchy, and /etc/xdg/menus/

you're right

" for some reason the menu didn't update ... deadbeef is now in the multimedia menu. sorry for the panic
