The default dictionary is very small, only the most frequently used
English words could be included. Have you downloaded the supplemental
dictionaries? You will then have four possibilities.

These are functional in GNOME and Windows, as are all the Cream
mappings. Language/encoding issues were resolved last release as best
I know, too.

We're almost there. Both GNOME and KDE are working toward the same
standard. They user a .desktop file somewhere in
to accomplish these menu and desktop icons. In GNOME, the definition
of that application launcher is stored directly in the above path. At
least in Fedora Core, KDE items are a subdirectory below:
Can you find a .desktop file matching the name of the launcher you
just created? It's just a text file, what are it's contents? We
probably just need to understand the Categories field so the same file
can work with both GNOME and KDE menu structures. Check out the
cream.desktop file we distribute and see how it needs to be modified.
I looked at my KEdit.desktop file and it says:
