As of version 2.6.8, the fvwm-menu-desktop script uses python 3, not python 2 so the script does not run. This is mentioned in the release notes:

As such, the dependency on python2-xdg should be changed to python-xdg and PYTHON=/usr/bin/python2 should not be set.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
fvwm 2.6.8-1

Steps to reproduce:
Start fvwm with the default config, open the root menu and then hover over the "XDG Menu" submenu. There is no output.
