what version are you on?
If you are using Xenial, then sometimes things don't always work right away.
You can try to manually install the gnome menus, and gir1.2-gmenu-3.0 (
possibly doing apt-cache search for those)

I don't use alacarte, but if you are trying to reconfigure the menus,
you *could* do it manually... by copying them into your $HOME and
editing the files there.
something like:
cp /etc/xdg/menus/lxde-applications.menu
(sub in leafpad or whatever you like for pico)
pico ~/.config/menus/lxde-applications.menu
should work AFAIK
