This is the one thing that I find annoying with Debian - it has its own menu system that it maintains - the problem is that none of the major GUIs actually use it. However, you can import the Debian menus into KDE and GNOME; run the command 'update-menus'. 'apt-get install menu' if you don't have it. Note, however that that will, I believe, add its own seperate menu in GNOME (underneath the main GNOME 'programs' menu). You will probably discover many other programs that you have and didn't know about when you do this (I found about 100 when I first learned of this command). Then, just edit your menu manually to clean it up if you want. All Debian packages are supposed to create a menu entry in the Debian system. Most do create entries in KDE and GNOME as well, but not all, unfortunately.
