i have installed xfce4 and i managed to install a gui user and group management application from the package "user-manager" it works fine i want the user and groups manager application that i installed to be added in the xfce4-settings-manager . I tried to use the settings editor but i don't know what how to add that application to the settings-manager .
what i want is , when i want to add or edit a user i should be able to open the user settings by going to the xfce4-settings-manager like this settings>user settings > add a user
, but currently if i want to add a user using gui i will have to search for the application in the menu , my problem is that i want to get that application listed in the settings manager but
don't know how
I am not aware of any simple solution for your problem, it basically involves modifying xfce4-settings-manager. I can suggest alternative, like adding keyboard shortcut for your application through keyboard settings. Infact you can add shortcuts for all commonly used applications like "winkey+f" for file-manager. This will make opening common applications much faster, better than menu or even using panels.

You need to add to the application's .desktop file the following categories (semi-colon delimited):
...and one of (depending on the section you want it to display in):
okay that looks complicated i will add a keyboard shortcut as said by Docbroke
Not really. Have a look at the /usr/share/applications/xfce-session-settings.desktop file. Model it after that one. Specifically:
[Desktop Entry] Name= User Management Comment=User and group management Exec=<EXECUTABLE> Icon=<ICON> Terminal=false StartupNotify=true Type=Application Categories=XFCE;GTK;Settings;DesktopSettings;X-XFCE-SettingsDialog;X-XFCE-SystemSettings;
...change the "Exec" and "Icon" entries to match. Save it as "user-management.desktop". Put the file in /usr/share/applications for system use or ~/.local/share/applications for user-only use.
i have an application launcher for that program but i want that applications to be listed in the default system-settings ( eg : keyboard settings in the xfce4-settings manager as it lacks a user settings catogory )application which will make it easy for other users to use
Did you try the desktop file from my last post? It will do just that.
Or change your existing launcher file so that Categories match the ones listed above.
