Hello

While installing my application through a shell script, I am trying to create a menu for it with some items in it for execution, in the linux start menu in RedHat 8.0 KDE and GNOME. (all I want is a menu item similar to Accessories, Graphics, Internet etc)
I have prepared the .desktop files, but i dont know where to put them ie., about their location in the file system.
Can anybody tell me, where should i create a folder and copy my files so that they appear as menu items in the start menu (in both KDE and GNOME) ?
Im eagerly waiting for a solution,

thanks in advance,
ramesh
