How to put new applcation under Applications->Programming menu

I just installed GNAT GPS and would like it to display under Applications->Programming drop down menu. How does one do this? I have read about creating a .desktop file but tried that and it still does not appear under the menu I like. It does appear on the desktop but not because of the .desktop file.

OS: fedora 14 63-bit

An example file (if needed) would be nice.

Also, just as a extra, has anyone found the GNAT GPS icon (.png) file?

Re: How to put new applcation under Applications->Programming menu

su - -c "yum install alacarte"
Right click Applications->Edit Menus, select Programming and click the `New Item' button. From there on it should be pretty straightforward. Post again if you get stuck
