nothing to do with illume or e and 100% to do with the system's menu config -
the exact same config that drives gnome, kde, e, xfce etc.

/etc/xgd/menus.applications.menu (or other menu files here) is what you need.
e's first run wizard gives you a choice of all the .menu files it finds. if it
finds any.
