On my desktop I currently have a right click menu that looks like:

right click LXDE menu

However, I want to have the full system menu that looks like this show up:

LXDE system menu

How do I do that?

You're really looking for obm-xdg.

I'm using it as a pipe menu and calling it with this command:

obm-xdg /etc/xdg/menus/

Here's the manpage.

You can use any .menu file, so feel free to try or too.
