Re: Registering apps with the menus


For KDE we are just reworking the menu stuff. We will probably add 
some other option to specify in which menu's the application should 
be added. (E.g. should it appear for all users or only for a group or
a single one) If someone from GNOME can post how things are done
in GNOME we might be able to keep things more or less compatible.
