About .desktop files (using xfce4)

I don't really understand how .desktop files work.

There are some in /usr/share/applications in /opt/kde/share/application /opt/gnome/...

Now I want some programs to be displayed in the xfce menu. Many are already registered but not eclipse.

I have found a eclipse.desktop file in /opt/kde/share/apps/kappfinder/apps/Development but I don't know how to use it.

Is there a .desktop management program ? Or is it because there must be an eclipse .desktop file in /opt/kde/share/applications ?
Does eclipse really depend of kde ?

Re: About .desktop files (using xfce4)

Just copy the .desktop file you found to somewhere in /usr/share/applications, /opt/gnome/share/applications or /opt/kde/share/applications.

Eclipse doesn't really depend on gnome or KDE I think, it's just the native interface libraries that do. Since you're not forced to use these JNI libraries, eclipse should not depend on them, but have them listed as makedepend.

Re: About .desktop files (using xfce4)

Is there a specific configuration file to set the differents .desktop file directories ?

Or each windows manager take its specific directory ?
