Question application menu doesnt have any items anymore -- Xfce Slackware 14.0


Hello,

I was editing the panels and lost, and this is funny, all the items in the Application Menu. How do you add items in the Application Menu? Where is it that you can edit the items manually so that at least I can customize it? Or maybe there is a way to reload it with all the default stuff that come with the installation of Slackware?

I use Xfce with Slackware 14.0.

Thanks,
Dumdadum
