Install / upgrade to the latest Whisker Menu in Xubuntu or Linux Mint

The Whisker Menu PPA was updated to the latest 1.4.0 version recently and you can use to both upgrade to the latest version obviously, as well as to install the tool in (X)Ubuntu versions for which Whisker Menu isn't available in the official repositories (supported versions: Ubuntu 14.04, 13.10 and 12.04 and the corresponding Linux Mint versions).

Note: I've only tested the latest Whisker Menu 1.4.0 in Xubuntu 14.04.

To add the Whisker Menu PPA and install / update the application, use the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin

If you've already had an older Whisker Menu version installed, you'll also need to restart the Xfce panel (or log out and log back in) to get the latest version:

xfce4-panel --restart

run npm command gives error "/usr/bin/env: node: No such file or directory"

I've found this is often a misnaming error, if you install from a package manager you bin may be called nodejs so you just need to symlink it like so "ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node"
