Hi

using the debian application «menu» you will fast have to see, that only a part of applications are available in the automatic build menu :twisted: ! (better success supplies the xfce4-appfinder!).

why?

how to add the missed other applications the adequate proprieties to also be registered and appear in «menu»?

Because not all programs provide a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/
