How do you start your Xfce session?

You should have the following env var set:

And garcon looks for $d/menus/${XDG_MENU_PREFIX}applications.menu
(with $d in $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, or /etc if empty).

This is usually set by /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc, spawned by
/usr/bin/startxfce4 (both from xfce4-utils >= 4.8.0).
