So does anyone know exactly know how I could get cake wallet on the App menu rather then having to type this out in a terminal every time?

You need to create a .desktop file to get an entry in the menu:

On your AppVM create a file:

$ touch ~/.local/share/applications/cake.desktop

Populate this empty file with the following contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Cake Wallet
Comment=Store, Send and Receive Monero

Replace with whereever you’ve unzipped the the tar.xz file. For example, if it is under a cake-wallet folder which is under your home folder, you should use this:


After that save and quit the file. Lastly, you should open your AppVM’s settings > Applications > Refresh applications
