[Linux] Xfce not showing all apps in the menu

When using Xfce as your desktop environment, you may notice that some installed applications are not listed in the main menu while other desktop environments indeed show them.

What happens is, if one of the application categories is Settings, then it won't show up under the main menu and will be listed under the Settings Manager application, accessible from the main menu. After opening it, you'll see those unlisted applications available.

After editing the application categories by altering its .desktop file, you'll see it listed under the main menu as well.
