User created desktop files, getting them in the menu..

I have some .desktop files I made under a different distro before switching to fedora, that launch some games in dosbox. I copied these files to /usr/share/applications, but they are not showing up on the gnome menu.

I did a side-by-side comparison between them and desktop files that are showing up in the menu, other than a version statement they seem more or less the same. Also verified permissions were the same on both.

I do realize I could manually add them to the menu, but I have 8 users on the system and would rather not repeat adding 15 shortcuts, 8 times, manually..

Is there a command I can run to add these globally, or is this supposed to JustWork(tm)?
