Scribus issue

I recently installed scribus and found an issue about the menu tree 
entry for it. I was wondering that no new icon appeared in my k-menu 
but since I start most of my apps just executing them from $PATH I 
didn't care to much.

I checked the install log now and vnd.scribus.desktop is installed in


And what to say.. it's pretty lonley in there. My kmenu doesn't index 
this folder and I doubt that gnome (or any other desktop enviroment 
with dynamic menu support) would check for .desktop files there.

Shouldn't this be installed to e.g. /usr/share/applications ?

I did the following steps to get this app in my kmenu for now:

ln -s /opt/lunar/qt/3/share/applications/vnd.scribus.desktop /usr/share/applications/
ln -s /opt/lunar/qt/3/share/pixmaps/scribusicon.png /usr/share/pixmaps/

And I edited vnd.scribus.desktop and added the following entry


because there are no categories defined in vnd.scribus.desktop and this 
would result in a new nasty entry "unknown stuff" or something like 
that in my k-menu.

Dunno who is the maintainer for scribus and I know this is just minor 
eyecandy but I hope this will be fixed by someone with more knowhow 
about how this path stuff works.
