I installed the new version on my netbook running VL Light 7.0 with LXDE.  Adie, FOX Calculator and PathFinder show up in the LXDE menu.  Shutterbug doesn't.  An error in the .desktup file maybe or Huh

The problem is an error in the .desktop file.  I corrected it on my system.  You may want to respin the package with an updated .desktop file.  I changed two things:  I gave the full path to the binary and I removed the InitialRequest = 3 line.

Here is my working .desktop file:

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=/usr/sbin/shutterbug
Icon=fox-shutterbug.png
Name=Shutterbug
Terminal=0
Categories=Application;Graphics;
X-KDE-SubstituteUID=false
X-KDE-Username=

Shutterbug should appear for LXDE users now.

Here is a look at the repo tools I use for this sort of thing.  Also for building updated version numbers of packages that are in the repo.
