Like the following for kappfinderdebianrc:

Right now, the Debian menu system stuffs all kinds of applications into the 
menus, and there's no way to customize it except for those WMs which support 
On the other hand, other distributions often do not do this at all, which is 
why kappfinder was introduced at all (so people who want xshipwars in their 
menus can find it there).
