    I'm running the LXDE desktop with a knoppix 7.0.5 USB created from the DVD

    Based on suggestions from klaus2008 in http://knoppix.net/forum/threads/305...ut-to-the-menu I've been able to add items to the menu with accessories / menu . Not a big deal, but while adding and deleting works fine, the new item is always at the end of the items in the menu section. The move up and down does not seem to do anything.

    Is this a limitation of the menu editor or should I be doing something different?

    Is your menu list alphabetized, possibly? Mine is.

    This is interesting, the item that I added was Firefox and it is last, but everything else is alphabetic within the internet section.

    Greetings, Dave.

    FWIW, In earlier versions of Knoppix, I used to add a Main Menu category, 'Hidden Gems',
    with six items previously not found in the Main Menu. Having tried both Alacarte and LXMed,
    I settled on a simple procedure indicated in posts 4 and 5 of the thread at:

    http://knoppix.net/forum/threads/298...highlight=gems

    IIRC, these additions are mostly no longer necessary as since most may now be found
    somewhere within the existing categories. BUT...

    In your case, you might compare your process with mine to see if anything obvious occurs.

    Regards
