edit: this does not work on the next Qubes release (R4.1) (see here)
Whisker menu is awesome (compared to the default XFCE one) and it doesn’t even have to be installed (it’s already there)
I think it’s comes already be installed on the system. So you can follow the following guide (from the
Add the Whisker menu to your XFCE panel part only)
Then you can also replace the “whiskers” icon with the qubes icon. Right-clicking on the whisker menu icon » properties » Icon
And then at the top of the window that pops up you select
Location Icons and then there should be 4 little “Q” icons (blue, green, red and yellow/orange).
nice find, i wasn’t aware
@deeplow! i’ve made a issue to see if maybe it can be default for R4.1:
I blame myself a bit for talking so long to making more people aware of this. (in part because
of this). I should have opened a ticket ages ago as I’ve been using whisker menu for a long time on Qubes. Perhaps then if I had opened a ticket like this then…
Made a longer comment
This does not seem to work in 4.1 (the upcoming Qubes version)
Yup. I also didn’t find. It’s possible it was excluded.
@michael this may affect you.

but as mamarek wrote there, you can still install it, because it is awesome!
