thank you for answering me Samuel,

I read  (
"the users menus are automatically constructed from the list of registered

In fact there are some directories:

That are automatically controlled by Linux, and all files with suffix
.desktop that are found there, they are interpreted as launchers to be
displayed on the desktop.

And this really happen....

Because this, I am led to believe that the same mechanism should be applied
also  to files with suffix (that group files. xxx.desktop in sub

So i am expecting that the file
</etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged/> that I build by the
command <xdg-desktop-menu instal>l realizes the design of menu  I want
:-) :-)
