Manually add programs into the Gnome Application Browser in 10.2

I have 10.2 and everything is working fine (except OpenGL, but even windows struggles with that).
I have installed a generic .rpm for GCStar which, of course, has not been added to the new Gnome Application Browser.

My question is - How do I manually add a shortcut to this menu?

I have tried Drag n Drop and tried looking for a configuration file to add in the links to the executables, but could not find one.

Anyone had this issue yet?

Its very simple, just right click the main menu and select 'Edit Menus'. Its pretty much self explanatory. If you can't edit the menu, you need to install alacarte menu editor.

Dunno about SuSE, in my Fedora i just do 'yum install alacarte'.

In normal Gnome that would work, but SUSE have pretty much remade Gnome into something completely different.

I've never been a fan of Gnome, but this I love. I've actually gone and left KDE for it, which is something I thought I'd never do!

.... Sorry, I'm getting off-topic.
