Hello,
this arrived to me with Q3.2 and I recall that it was a real pain in the
b***; I start thinking I should backup these under Q4 from time to time
:) Question: Which files / dir's do I need to backup in  dom0?  Bernhard

Ohh, smart, I didn't think about that.

I did this to get the majority of them back;
```
cd
qvm-run -p sys-net 'tar cf - /usr/share/applications' | tar xvf -
qvm-run -p sys-net 'tar cf - /usr/share/app-info/icons/fedora/' | tar xvf -

and then you can copy or move the files from $HOME/usr/share/
into the system dir.
I'll add the suggestion to double check they do what they are supposed to be 
doing (check the Exec line).

So do many people - if you search the list you will find many reports and
solutions.

You are probably missing the desktop files from /usr/share/applications
You can copy the files from out of a Fedora based qube if you have one.

If you still have the install medium then you can extract the desktop
files for applications that you want, by pulling them from the rpm
packages:

For example, to get the xterm .desktop file:

mount qubes.iso /mnt
rpm2cpio /mnt/Packages/x/xterm-318-2.fc23.86_64.rpm |cpio -idv "*.desktop" 
This will extract xterm.desktop in usr in the current directory, and you
can then move it in to /usr/share/applications

Alternatively, just reinstalling the packages you want will provide the
menu entries again.
