This project is to develop a GUI/graphical way to create a .desktop file. Whereas alacarte can be used to do this, alacarte requires multiple creation of several launchers if one wants them in several menu areas. The menu specification allows one .desktop file to lists more than one menu location.

This project doesn't support all possible .desktop formating choices, but allows the basics for someone who has a wine file, or some other program they would like to launch graphically to easily be done by locating it in the users menu structure or in the system structure (or in a custom location, like the autostart folder).
