That's annoying.  I have:
and the local applications directory contains some CrossOver .desktop files 
that I created manually.  These do show up in the menu.

Which contains: /home/derek/.config/menus/:/etc/xdg/menus/

where ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/cxlegacy.menu points to 
which contains two directories "CrossOver" and "Windows_Applications".  Those 
directories contain .desktop files and other directories.  However, none of 
those files get included into the menu in any way.

Which I have.  I think this might all be kubuntu related - I think kubuntu is 
(very annoyingly) suppressing all sorts of menus - which is why kappfinder 
isn't there.  I'll have to try on the kubuntu list.
