Please include a .desktop file for scite. Attached is
the version I put into debian.

    There is already a .desktop file in scite/gtk/SciTE.desktop.
    Unfortunately with GTK+ 2.x "make install" no longer seems
    to add it to the GTK+ menu.

    I believe it's because the SciTE.desktop has the x bit.

    Try this:
    $ cd scite/gtk/
    $ chmod -x SciTE.desktop
    now you should be able to add it to the menu thru konqueror or just do:
    $ su #become root
    # cd /var/lib/menu/kde/Applications/Programming/
    # ln -s scite/gtk/SciTE.desktop #where scite is the absolute path of your
    scite directory

    now refresh the menu (by logging out or faking a change of a property of
    the menu like transparency)

    You can easily start scite now.

    Make install was for installing into GNOME as SciTE is a
    GTK+ rather than a Qt application. I found some problems
    with the current .desktop file not matching the
    specification and have modified it and the makefile in CVS
    to make GNOME 2 recognise it.
