Bug Description

Installing xubuntu 16.04 and LTSP I realized missing entries in whisker menue when logged into a ThinClient. Logged in directly to the server they appeared.

The missing entries are .desktop-files stored in /usr/share/applications
with an entry
"OnlyShowIn=XFCE;"
commenting this entry in an .desktop-file
"#OnlyShowIn=XFCE;"
the entry appeares immediately.

env | grep XDG
reveals
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Xubuntu Session

the invironment isn't set correctly. It should be
XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=XFCE

This is done by
/opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/rc.d/X50-generate-env
"greping" the files in
/usr/share/xsessions

In
xubuntu.desktop
should be an entry:
DesktopNames=XFCE

Then the entries appear.

dpkg -S xubuntu.desktop
xubuntu-default-settings: /usr/share/xsessions/xubuntu.desktop

I assume that adding this line to xubuntu.desktop will not break anything.
