Adding a new category in gnome menu


Desktop Invironment = "Gnome 2.8"

I know this is realy easy but I can't find it. I know I have to edit the .dekstop files in share/applications to create a new entry in a category, but what I want is to create a new category via command line. For example:

Currently we have Launch --> Applications --> Category (i.e. Office, Accessibility, etc)

What I am trying to do is create a new category, something like this:

Launch --> Applications --> New Items --> Program 1
Launch --> Applications --> New Items --> Program 2
Launch --> Applications --> New Items --> Program 3

Anyone any ideas? It has to be via command line!

Many Thanks

Ricardo W.

Open up the filebrowser and type 'applications:///' in the address bar, In slackware 10 there is a small bug where by when you create a folder or launcher it doesn't appear until you log out and back in, don't know if this exists with other distos

Thank you, unforunately it's not via the browser I need to do it, as I know how to do that, it is via the command line as I what to script something.

Many Thanks
