btw, found this description of a menu editor but can't find the app in my applications / settings, or anywhere else. How do I start it from the command line?
Okay, please have a look at the URL I posted before once more:
There is a section called "To Add a Launcher to a Menu", this is what you want to do, add a new item. In Gnome "language" it is called a "Launcher".
Alternatively you can enter the following URL into Nautilus, the Gnome file manager:
More information on the Nautilus can be found here:
This is all said on http://www.gnome.org/learn/users-guide/2.6/ch05s07.html
I don't use gnome, so I can just repeat the docs here, please try and if you have problems after all feel free to post again!
