Please submit a bug on the package and possibly a patch. This way the
maintainer has the chance to update it and make a workable version.

If this package is new you have to apply for maintainer. See the homepage
section developers corner for more info.

AFAIK packages update menus for fvwm, wm. I think gnome sould be supported as
well. The reason for a non-working update is the omission of update-menus in
the install script. You can check this on an installed package to look in
/var/lib/dpkg/info/<package>.{postinst,postrm}. There should be a reference
like 'if test -x /usr/bin/update-menus ; then update-menus ; fi'

You can contact the maintainer if this is not functioning properly.
(mail <package>@packages.debian.org e.g.)
