When I tick a checkbox to show Ubuntu 10.04 menu category, the checkbox unticks itself after a couple of seconds. Gif of screen.
Is there any other way to edit Ubuntu menu categories or add a category? LXMenuEditor doesn't work on my system (I get Unable to access jarfile /opt/lxmed/LXMenuEditor.jar when trying to launch it, probably because it requires Sun's JRE).
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 for PPC.

have you tried menulibre? – cipricus Nov 26 '12 at 8:22

Found a solution, you have to create and check an item in a menu/category for it to be shown.
