Thank you everyone.

I think the dbus command has its own assortment of problems. For now, I'll keep using dmenu just like I've been doing all these years across desktops. That's what I'm done to anyway and it always works.

I was talking about single instance of lxqt-panel, not plugins. Multiple plugins it's another story... not ideal as well :-(

This does cause trouble when we have multiple plugins of the same type
though. We have bugs reported regarding things breaking when we have
2+ global menus, or 2+ task managers.
