Where is the file?

I am trying to edit my applications menu to restore my wine folder to my menu. I can't seem to find the menu configuration file though. I have googled endlessly and still nothing. According to the wine wiki it is supposed to be in ~/.config/menus/ but it isn't. Can someone help me locate this file?

Which Desktop Environment are you running? KDE, Xfce, etc.

Good article, Woodsman.

OP, did that solve your problem?

Noddegamra, While it might be interesting info., I don't think his choice of DE/WM has much to do w/ a file not showing up where the manual says it's supposed to be.

OP, did you try the obvious locate & find commands?:
locate  | less -S
locate applications       | less -S
locate menu               | less -S
find ~ -name ""   | less -S
find ~ -name "*"  | less -S
find ~ -name "*applications*"      | less -S
find ~ -name "*menu"               | less -S


kde, menu
