i think thats due to theme and entires being disabled and the theme simply
making text greyed out then. :)

correct. if xfce-terminal doesnt go provides it (u can check with xprop too -
but i think your problem is xfce-terminal, not e here), then e is unable to
figure out the correct launch command. xterm though does work right here -
maybe try use that instead? :)

you can multi-select items in the list above - that deletes the selected
remembers, so you can keep the ones u want :) well delete jut those 4 - it's
not much of a loss really. you can do what u want - u just need a terminal ap
that actually gives useful info. :)
