don't be root and use nano (or something even more masochistic) to edit.

wild guess:
maybe gnome classic puts ONLY gnome applications in its menu.
you can copy the .desktop file to ~/.local/share/applications - use the command line folr this, keep the filename identical - and edit it to include a specific DE (look at other .desktop files to see what i mean).

DE=Desktop Entry?
Code: Select all
 Fichero: /home/ventolero/.local/share/applications/picard.desktop             

[Desktop Entry]
Name=MusicBrainz Picard
Comment=Tag your music with the next generation MusicBrainz tagger
Exec=picard %F
Terminal=false
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Icon=picard
Categories=AudioVideo;Audio;AudioVideoEditing;
MimeType=audio/x-mp3;audio/ogg;audio/mpeg;application/ogg;audio/x-flac;audio/x-$

yes DE=desktop entry, probably meant Desktop Environment

If it does not show up in whatever, it might be a bug .desktop files are pretty reliable, but it could happen. If you check the bug reports for the pkg that installed the .desktop file, and find it is not a known bug, it it might help others who have the same issue if you can find a way to alter the .desktop file for the app, you can include that fix in the bug report.

Deblib, you aren't really doing anything to solve your problem.
you're just dumping more output on us.
i'm pretty sure my advice so far specified actions to be taken.

...for instance, find another .desktop file that does work, alter the bad one to look like it.
