I have difficulty editing the xfce desktop menu on Xubuntu 13.10.
The default menu is available for editing by selecting properties. 
Unfortunately, the menu then shown is not the same as that used for 
selecting applications on the desktop.
I noticed this when trying to install the latest Supertuxkart game (8.2) 
which I downloaded from their site. The game plays after decompression 
by selecting run_game.sh. It can be added to the menu, but it won't 
allow setting it under 'games' it puts it under 'other'. It will not run 
when called giving an error caption about not finding the file and when 
attempting to re-edit it has disappeared.
If I use ubuntu software centre the menu shows SuperTuxKart under 
'games' as would be expected.
Why doesn't the system allow editing of the menu using alacarte as in 
previous versions?
