Ubuntu – Where does Alacarte store the file with the edited menus


I'm trying to import some settings unto a new machine, I've edit the Menus and removed some categories and removed some entries but I don't know where does Alacarte stores the file which contains all of that information.

How can I find this file (if it exists)? or How can I Import my custom menu settings?

I don't think there's a dedicated file managing menu associations centrally. Alacarte operates by modifying applications' .desktop files, so you might want to back up these folders:
