Hello, I installed QGIS2 from the OpenSuse 13.1 Geo repository. The application works fine but in doing this it wiped / corrupted half my LXDE app launcher menu.
I now only have Accessories, Development, Education, Games, Graphics, Run and then Logout at the bottom.
QGIS has been added to the app launcher menu in Graphics but it's at the bottom and all the graphics apps after Q are missing.
This would suggest that something QGIS has added is upsetting the menu launcher parser
I traced this to the qgis2.desktop file which is created like this
GenericName=Geographic Information System
I found that if I delete the line Type=Application and save then all the launcher menu options come back again and all is fine.
I don't get this problem in KDE or XFCE. The above .desktop file looks correct to me and I believe Type=Application is an allowable option so I don't know why lxpanel doesn't like this.
