Package: libgarcon-common
Version: 0.2.1-2
Severity: normal

I have installed openbox-menu (0.5.1-2) and this package
(libgarcon-common) as one of its dependencies. I wish to use
openbox-menu to generate a menu from the file xfce-applications.menu
found in libgarcon-common. However, this fails with an error:

$ openbox-menu xfce-applications.menu

** (openbox-menu:9684): WARNING **: Can't get menu root directory

I did discover that if I change line five of xfce-applications from
then it works as it should.
