yeah, we certainly started it (putting icons in place, etc), I
forget where we got with it to though. The basic thing is that
the "grass.desktop" file needs to be copied into
 /usr/share/applications/ if it isn't already.


ah, we were waiting on a file to show up, which now has.

that file looks like it still needs some revision, but the
important line is Terminal=true.

For WindowMaker-style WMs (like Fluxbox) the appropriate file
is "grass.menu":
