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.
