No one seems to know or wasn't able to answer so i'll throw up the solution I found!
There are 3 locations you should be concerned with:
Bear in mind the last location is system-wide specific, if you want it just for your user, use:
- Create a file called
APPNAME for whatever you want to call it) in the folder location
- Input these contents:
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
<Name>Applications</Name> <!-- This is necessary for your directory to appear in the applications drop down -->
<Menu> <!--app -->
</Menu> <!-- End app -->
</Menu> <!-- End Applications -->
- Save the file and create another file called
APPNAME.directory in the folder location ( it should be the same name specified in the
/usr/share/desktop-directories with these contents:
.directory filename should be exactly the same as the
.directory name you entered in the
.menu file above.
- Create a standard
.desktop file in
/usr/share/applications with these contents (substituting for your own program of course and the
Categories=line MUST BE the same as the name you gave the
.directory file eariler)
