I installed xpdf and xscreensaver on my Xfce 4.6 but the they didn't appear on my Xfce Menu. I searched for xfce4-menueditor but I didn't find it in the port folder nor the internet. How can I edit the xfce menu without this tool? I still can run xpdf and xscreensaver through terminal.

Please help me?

Thanks Beastie, I'll try to follow the instructions given in the wiki.
I checked the given link and followed the instructions on the xfce wiki, however the folder /usr/share/applications/ doesn't exist on my bsd box! Thus the wiki was not usefull to me :(. Does anyone know a work around this issue?

XFCE is a port, and ports install under /usr/local. So look in /usr/local/share/applications.

Thanks DutchDaemon, I managed to edit the xfce menu by right-click on the application icon and open it with mousepad as root, then edited the code that defines
Code:
Categories=Application;
with the targeted sub-folder in the xfce menu :e.
