  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit
I'm kinda new to Linux, and I'm learning to do (what I think it's only Windows-slang) desktop shortcuts (or soft links?) for things I find useful. And I think I found a bug while adding custom items to show up in the Whisker Menu. Here's what I do:

I'm using Linux Lite 4.2 with the default desktop environment.

1- Right-click the Whisker Menu / Edit Applications
2- In the MenuLibre window that pops up, I click on the "Other" category in the left menu (or could be any other category for that matter).
3- Click the + button and then "New Launcher".
4- In the Command text bar, I write the full path to a soft link that points to my executable, e.g. /usr/bin/soft_link_to_exec
5- In the Working Directory, I type in just the soft link's containing folder e.g. /usr/bin
6- I click "Save Launcher", and click the "Test Launcher" button. The application launches successfully. I close the MenuLibre window.
7- I click the Whisker Menu and start typing the application, and it does NOT appear.

Now, to get it to appear:

8- Launch the MenuLibre window again, delete the newly created launcher, and close the MenuLibre window.
9- Follow steps 1-7 again EXCEPT for step 2 (meaning, as soon as the MenuLibre window opens, go straight to the + button and then "New Launcher")
10- The item should be listed when typing in the Whisker Menu bar.

Can someone reproduce this issue on their end?

Thanks.
