    Kali 2.0 - Right Click(No new document)[SOLVED!]

    If I recall on previous Kali Linux, if we right click on Desktop for example, there should be an option for "New Document" something, instead I have only "New Folder". I need the "New Document" when I right click.

    I've searched around, but can't seem to find one. Already done apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

    Is there any solution for this, or if there is any thread that I might miss by any chance.

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT:

    Somehow, I found the solutions after 2 days of finding. Here are the solutions.

    Here is an example image of the problem I had:

    guide-3.jpg

    In your root directory, find a folder named - Templates

    Code:
    $ cd Templates
    and if you list the file(s) inside it, there's a chance that it is empty.

    Code:
    $~/Templates# ls
    All you need to do, is to create a new file in it with name "New Document" by using your leafpad or any text editor.

    Code:
    $~/Templates# touch "New Document"
    guide-2.jpg

    That's it! You're done now. Try right clicking on any directory, and you can see that "New Document" option is in your right click!

    p/s: If you want, for example, add LibreOffice Writer in the right click option, simply open up your LibreOffice, no need to add any text in it, and save it to Templates folder, and name it as "LibreOffice Writer".

    Hope this help some people
