Yes, you're referring the creating an application launcher, I take it? However, the
extension to this is the need to create one for each of the installed applications that
do not get added to the (already in place) existing menus. I guess I'm asking about
keeping the application launchers within the existing menu system.

I have seen this procedure mentioned in the FAQ
(, however, "Right-clicking"
Applications brings up: Help; Edit Menus; Remove from Panel and Lock to Panel.

Clicking on Edit Menus brings up a dialogue box that displays the current list of
available applications, but no facility to *Add* a new menu item, from what I'm seeing.
Again, is this expected, or is there some bits missing from my Gnome-2.14
installation(s) (just checked on three other machines, with the same results) here?

Thanks again.
