Upstream provides .desktop files, mostly well translated.

By creating .desktop files, you're reinventing the wheel, making SUSE's
menu entries inconsistent with other distros, and messing in menu.

You may ask "what's that mess?".

The mess is:
* more categories than entries in those categories
* entries duplication
* wrong categories set (Liferea is RSS aggregator, not newsgroups
client/whatever, same applies for Miro)
* configuration apps not in GNOME's control center but in usual
"Applications" menu and/or application browser

Upstream desktop files should be used already if appropriate.
If you see bugs you should report them since what you are saying is no general issue.

I'll probably have to find better host for these screenshots.
Tell me, when this doesn't work.

Didn't work for me.
