Description of problem:
I was looking for kstars in the GNOME menu and discovered that it
couldn't be found.

Looking at the .desktop file it has the following Categories...

The same applies for all of the programs in the kdeedu package (and
only those programs, on my system at least). Since there is no
Education category in the GNOME menu, they never show up.

I thought that the Bluecurve concept (and the freedesktop.org concept)
was to merge KDE and GNOME environments and provide access to
applications from both environments? I have not tried switching to a
KDE desktop. However these programs should probably appear in the menu

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Search for KStars, Kalzium etc. on the Bluecurve GNOME desktop menus

Actual Results:  There is no Education category and the applications
cannot be found under any other category

Expected Results:  The applications should appear under some category
(Applications? if not a separate Education menu)

In FC1, the kdeedu applications should appear in Others menu. i have
added Education menu in FC2

Good news about FC2 - thanks - looking forward to it.
