There is both a debian menu system and also a gnome/kde menu system.
1) Debian menu
Here's what debian policy has to say,
The debian menus are managed by the tools in the debian "menu" package.
2) Gnome/KDE menu
Here's the gnome/kde standard,
You might also look as what some other packages do, they install their menu
entries in /usr/share/menu. You can look at the source of other packages to
see how they do that. If your package uses debhelper, the dh_installmenu
command is what you want to use.
Those pointers should be enough to figure it out.
