first of all thanks for your answer. I was editing the lkmonitor.desktop.in file and this is the final content:
Comment=Tool for monitoring and managing linux's kernel
So, I think the application would have to have an icon in the GNOME menu in Applications -> System like Beryl Manager for example (see the attached file) but it hasn't. I am looking some files in /usr/share/aplications/*.desktop but I don't know where is the problem.
Thanks for helping me

You probably missed to fix the .desktop file. That would explain, why
you have an entry in the GNOME menu and why this entry has it's own
