kxstudio-menu messes up wine entries in xfce

Bug Description


I recently installed kxstudio-menu on a debian buster machine with xfce.

Debian 4.19.98-1 (2020-01-26) x86_64 GNU/Linux

While i really appreciate the new submenu layout in the "Applications" menu structure, i noticed a regression in the "wine" program menus.

'Cause now they create an extra folder entry for any .desktop item inside the "Programs" Folder.

What that winds up to is many "duplicates", thus making the "Programs" folder incredibly big and messy. Example: Where i once had just 1 submenu entry for "IrfanView", i now have 10 of them !

1 containing all its .desktop entries in one folder (as it should)
and 9 containing only one .desktop file each.

It must be kxstudio-menu which does this, because as soon as i remove it, the menu structure is reverted to the previous behaviour

This only happens in the "Wine" section of "Applications", all other entries work fine, and as i said i really like the categories layout. i would like to keep it. but the "Wine" entries are messeed up ;-)

please see attached screenshot of the menu with "kxstudio-menu" installed (left image) and uninstalled (right image)

i tried to tweak xfce menu entries to no avail to get rid of that annoying side effect.
