(RESOLVED)Edit the BL menu

In older releases of BL there was a menu editor, but I can not find one in the Lithium release.

I tried:

    Preference --> jgmenu --> Edit Menu Content

and found that the file is a text file. This file looks more like an input file to a program (jgmenu maybe?). It does not look like it is meant to be hand edited.

Is there a menu editor available in Lithium?

@rbh, wrong link. Also, the thread with the most info is massive...

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=2862

Here's a nice article and video that breaks it down on Arch, Debian will be similar except for the package management...

@rbh I fixed the link. That is really the best place to go for guidance on editing the menu.

@jjanderson5 That text file is indeed intended to be edited by hand. It's a csv file, and once you get the basic idea it's not difficult.

@ALL

Thanks for your replies. I have not really educated myself on editing the menu yet, but I will follow your pointers and hopefully grasp what I need.
