GNOME KDE [Desktop Entry] Query


Hi all

When following tutorials in regards to installing certain programs like limewire or azureus it says to add the following to have the program added to GNOME menu.

gedit /usr/share/applications/LimeWire.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=LimeWire
Comment=LimeWire
Exec=limewire.sh
Icon=/opt/LimeWire/LimeWire.ico
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;Network;

I used this when setting up UBUNTU on my laptop.

For FC5 on my desktop I am using KDE.

Do I still use

gedit /usr/share/applications/LimeWire.desktop for these programs when using KDE or is it a different setup.

Thanks in adavance.

Gimmee

Apps with entries in /usr/share/applications will show up in the KDE menu so the setup is not different whether you use KDE or GNOME.
