There is a post somewhere about how to add back the 'Other' menu to the new Raspbian GUI.
I can't find it at the moment, but it does work.
Wrong answer. That's something that must work out of the box. If an application menu hides installed GUI applications for "design reasons" it's simply rubbish.
Whereas I would argue that if an application's developer cannot be bothered to categorise it in any of the numerous categories which the FreeDesktop spec allows (http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-s ... t/apa.html
- all of which *will* display on the Pi under Raspbian), then the fault is with the application developer, not the desktop environment. This is not a "bug" in the desktop environment; it is a very deliberate design decision.
As I have explained before, the Other menu is, frankly, a godawful mess. Half the items in it don't actually do anything when you click on them; most have cryptic names that mean nothing to most users, and it duplicates numerous items which are already in the menu system elsewhere. On top of that, making a user hunt through a list of 30 or 40 items (which is the size it had under default Raspbian) is plain bad design - that's why hierarchical menus exist.
It is gone from the default Raspbian image, and it is not coming back. If people want to restore it themselves, that's fine - use the instructions linked above. But the *correct* thing to do is to modify the application's .desktop file to put it in a sensible menu category.
