#1373: Geospatial menu missing in LXDE

  * keywords:  => menus, lxpanel


 Ok, it's not finished yet but I made some good progress on customizing the
 lubuntu 14.04 main menu with our submenus.

 some lessons learned:
  - lxpanel is ignoring /usr/local/share/desktop-directories/, need to use
  - .menu files want full menu hierarchy in the xml
  - running `lxpanelctl restart` or logging out and back in wasn't enough
 to regenerate the menu tree; renaming the /usr/share/desktop-directories
 /osgeo-main.menu file to something else will do it though.

 still todo:
  - add <Exclude>s to the Education menu after verifying that all are
 accounted for
  - tweak sub-menus to avoid duplicate copies of icons and sub-menus in the
  - figure out why top-level menu icons don't work but lower level menu
 icons do.
  - ...?
