Application Menu not showing a particular Folder...


Hi All,
I am still on the Learning curve, trying to get a Handle on the Directories and such. As a Amateur radio Buff, i tried downloading a Bunch of seemingly great applications for my Ham radio station. Some of the Apps belong in a folder called Amateur Radio, according to the files in Properties. I have a folder called Ham radio, But not a Amateur radio one. Is there a way to "re associate the Applications to go into the Ham radio folder, or is there a way to add the Amateur radio Folder in the application Menu on the top bar? the downloaded apps did not create one that I can find. Can't get the applications to run. Any Ideas appreciated. I love Xubuntu otherwise. No hang ups with the Digital modes (was a HUGE pain in the backside with that "Other Operating system)

thanks for the assistance!

Hello,

What do you mean the application menu? Are you talking about when you click on Applications on the bar at the top of your screen, under the directory locations? I think you can drag and drop, along with whenever you open a dialog to open or save files in any programs, you can navigate to the directory above the one you want in the list, and drag and drop to the left side to add it to the list. Don't quote me on that, as I don't have linux right in front of me.

Now as far as getting the applications to "run," where exactly do you have them saved? How did you install them? Or, did you just download them? If you did, just look under the preferences of your browser of where your files are defaulted to download to, and you can change the preference to ask you each time, etc.

Can you please elaborate and explain more what you mean by this?

Cheers,

Josh

Hi Josh,
Yes, I am speaking of the Drop Down box that contains the Folders for the various applications:graphics, Internet, Wine...Etc. I downloaded a few programs through synaptic that did what it was supposed to as far as opening and installing. the trouble is: the Folder Ham radio is not showing any of the programs, where I would have expected them. I looked at the Properties of the programs missing, and the folder that they should be in to is called Amateur Radio, Not Ham radio. So I would like to be able to get these programs on the drop down menu in applications Menu, I assume I would have to make and/or add the folder Amateur radio, or edit the Properties to get them there. If I try to use the application finder, I don't see them there. When I download the Apps, I figured they would either be sorted to the various folders automatically,Or if the folder does not exist, the script for the App would create it?

Does that help?

Drew

Ahh, I see what you mean. You had me confused at first... You can right click where Applications is, click on edit menus, or whatever option it is, and you can manually add your programs, along with creating a new directory/location under which ever slot that you need them.
