The Oracle Solaris Desktop implements menus according to the XDG menu specification. By supporting this specification, the Oracle Solaris Desktop enables you to:
Customize the menu hierarchy easily.
You need to edit only a small number of files to customize the menu hierarchy. You do not need to modify your applications or move files.
Install applications easily.
You do not need to provide information about the menu hierarchy to applications when you install applications.
Configure menus so that users cannot modify the menus.
The menus in the Oracle Solaris Desktop use the following file components:
Menu definition files
Desktop entry files
Directory entry files
