Adding menu items

OK, go easy. New Slacker here. At least it's running - with dropline gnome too.
So far I got Samba up and Opera installed and VIM installed.

Now this is the frustrating type of thing in Linux for me which no doubt due to years of use, take me 30 secs in Win. - I can't see how to add a newly installed application to the gnome menu in Slackware. Couldn't find anything in the Slackware site doc or by web searching or by searching the dropline forum. No problem with Opera, it made its own menu item. But I would like one for GVIM and maybe other apps later on. So who knows how to do this no doubt simple thing?
Thanks for sharing!

Well, I'm currently on Red Hat and using KDE, BUT, try right clicking on the little gnome foot, or whatever you click on to pop up the menu. On KDE you can right click on the little hat and select Menu Editor.

good luck...

Thanks itsjustme - guess I expected this to be a lot harder than Fedora, but it's about the same.
You were pretty close - just right click on the task bar to add a launcher or right click on a menu section to add an item. It set up ok.
