    I deleted the menu entry for "XFCE-About" in /usr/share/applications/


    Now I want to add a desktop file for a menu item but have it appear right above "log-out"


    I created a desktop file and placed it in /usr/share/applications/. It is simply placed alphabetically above the submenu entries.


    How do I get it to appear below the bottom separator line below the "System" menu?


    And is there a place I can put it so that it is user specific?


    I looked online and tried


    ~/.config/menus


    and also


    ~/.local/share/applications/


    neither seem to work? I have logged out and rebooted also.


    HELP?

    Copied the file /etc/xdg/op/menu/xfce-applications.menu to ~/.config/menus


    and have my desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications


    no menu item. I ONLY get the menu item if the desktop file is in /usr/share/applications


    And I can not get it moved above the log-out even if I edit xfce-applications.menu and add this desktop to the TopLevel list right above Log-Out.


    But it is Still NOT Working.


    How do I get a custom placement of icons. The above files in my username directory do not seem to get used like other XFCE versions.
