Well, with some hunting I managed to find this:
It's straight from novell, so I figured it would work... but it doesn't. At one point it mentions: " /etc/opt/gnome/gnome-vfs-2.0/vfolder/applications-all-users.vfolder-info" but this file doesn't exist. Am I missing something?
Right now I have:
Exec= (where it is)
Icon=(the icon location I chose)
It adds the launcher to the menu, but in a Applications submenu (no programming menu or anything). Even if I change Categories to Games, it stays in the Applications submenu. I've also tried creating a Programming.directory in /opt/gnome/share/desktop-directories but that didn't help at all.
Is there an easier way? Please please tell me there is! I'd hate to go back to XP because of something so simple
