Dear Alessandro,

The Debian menu does not appear by default on standard GNOME installations.
sqlkit.desktop places an entry in the FreeDesktop (GNOME) menu, while sqledit.menu
places an entry in the Debian menu.

If you right-click on the Applications menu, and chose “Edit Menus”, you can
enable the Debian menu. It is also there by default on other window managers,
like Xfce.

In summary, please keep both files. Also, there is no need for postinst scripts
anymore since addition of menu entries are managed by dpkg triggers, but this
should automatically been taken care from debhelper anyway…

Have a nice day,
