I booted into a live session of MX Linux to play around with the Whisker menu. Hadn't noticed this before, or else I forgot, but I see the MX Menu Editor. Nice! From what I'm seeing, their menu editor doesn't allow for editing or re-arranging the categories in the menu, but maybe I'm just not seeing how that's done.
Yeah. I've gotten spoiled by obmenu, the Openbox GUI menu editor. And, I don't think Fluxbox has a GUI menu editor, but editing the Fluxbox menu is kinda painless as the text files are easy to work with. With both Openbox and Fluxbox, I save my config files, then I reuse them (tweaked a bit) for new installations.
With Xfce, I make only a few changes to the menu these days. I think my notes from what I did with a Buster installation last year explain it best:
Editing the Xfce menu in Buster...
To remove the File Manager, Terminal Emulator, Mail Reader, and Web Browser entries from the root menu,
I copied the exo-file-manager.desktop, exo-terminal-emulator.desktop, exo-mail-reader.desktop, and
exo-web-browser.desktop files from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications, then edited
each file by removing the Category X-Xfce-Toplevel.
To remove Thunar options from right-click menu, issue the following command:
$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -v --create -p /desktop-icons/style -t int -s 0
To toggle back and forth between the properties:
$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -v -p /desktop-icons/style -s 0
$ xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -v -p /desktop-icons/style -s 2
