Are they still using the same categories to fill their menus? Last time I
checked, I had to use two different categories in the .desktop to make sure
my app's menu entry actually wound up in both KDE and Gnome's menus at all.
It's been a few years since I did this, but if it's the same situation,
it's still a problem.
