If you press ALT+F2 and run:

alacarte

Does it run and let you edit the menu?

 i had to go to synaptic to install it . i clicked alt/ f2 then entered alacarte it brought up main menu , i marked changes there, restarted and it made no changes . just to let you this the second i have tried main menu . menu editor removes software center .

 it seams that what i want to do may not be possible . so how do i put icons on the desk top ? firefox,thunderbird ,mahjongg ,tali . then i can easy access to them and auto hide the top panel for the other things if i need them . ubuntu is my main os xubuntu is just to play with .

 i right clicked created a launcher then add the icons that were close to what i added . i now have web broswer and thunderbied on desktop . so problem solved .
