Stupid question? Debian/KDE/Gnome menus?

why isn't my Debian menu or my KDE or Gnome menu showing up?

All I want to do is run my normal applications on the desktop, not the 3D file navigator which barfs at the sheer size of my home and desktop.

When you run Looking Glass in >>developer mode<< or >>application mode<<, LG3D runs in a window on your desktop so you have direct access to your default menu.
But when you run Looking Glass in >>session mode<< (by using GDM), it runs as the sole window manager. That's why you don't have access to your GNOME/KDE menus.

AFAIK Mr Juan González worked on this, but unfortunately I don't know the results.
