I saw this reply and thought, great, my answer.. Well not so fast... lol
I added a test item via Nautilus actions and it only appears on the Nautilus File Manager menu, not the desktop.
Secondly, how do add an item that will pull up the Application Menu? gnome-main-menu?
Well I've tried numerous options in the*Nautilus Actions but to no avail. Yes I am running Nautilus desktop with Metacity as window manager. Like I said earlier, by using gconf-editor I've managed to get the Main-Menu to popup via <Super>Z and thats great, but sure would be nice to be able to rightclick on the desktop and get the same thing along with the standard Create Folder, Create Launcher, etc.
Thanks for your quick reply.
Ok, it didn't work for me either when I clicked on the blank desktop, it works when I click on a folder or file on the desktop.
To get it working, in nautilus actions in advanced conditions add "x-nautilus-desktop", the description can be anything. Then tick "Both" files and folders. and get it to launch the /usr/lib/gnome-main-menu/application-browser.
