I am not sure where you are going with the few lines above  :)  If I 
assume you mean when running xfce's menu in Unity. The answer is that I 
really don't know. I did not do close checking as I could not get other 
things working as I liked. That is, the concept itself did not seem to 
work. Having said that, I think it is possible to override some of that 
stuff in the menu definition file. However, I am also not sure I would 
want to do that. Most of the onlyshowin apps are that way for a reason. 
The next question of course is what DE would xfce4-panel think it was 
running in  :)  again, I don't know.
