As far as I know, in older versions of XFCE this was a default behaviour - "Applications" menu was popped-up immediately on desktop mouse right-click. But now "Applications" menu appears as a sub-menu in a folder-class context menu which pops up instead.
I never store any files on the Desktop, so "Create folder", "Open terminal here" menu items are useless for me to have on the Desktop, instead I'd like "Applications" menu to open when I right-click on the Desktop.
From using ArchLinux I can remember that there was a special package to install to address this issue. Is there such a package (or another solution) available for Xubuntu?
