ScummVM doesn't have a menu entry in the GNOME2 menu. Here's the required .desktop file to make it show up in the menu.

Not being a Gnome/KDE user, I am curious: can you please explain a bit better what these files do, and how a user would install them (that would affect how we put this file into our CVS, too, if we should choose to do so. Like, would it require an installer?).

Maybe Endy can comment on this, too :-). It sounds useful for a 0.6.0 release, but I wouldn't know.

.desktop files are placed in /usr/share/applications. If fam is running then the menu is updated immediatelly or if not when GNOME/KDE is restarted. No other action is required besides copying the file to the applications folder.

For more information about the format of the .desktop files:

Could be useful when/if the 'Makefile install target' RFE is done. However, until we have an install method during build, there is no point installing a menu entry :)

I'm fairly sure scummvm doesn't support startup notification, so StartupNotify must be false in the desktop entry.

I added the .desktop file, changed as by wjp's suggestion, to CVS (both trunk and the 0.6.0 branch). It'll be used by the RPM .spec file, and we can later add "make install" support for it if we want to.
