Most programs (except for ones that are mainly useful on the command line) do
go into the debian/ubuntu menu automatically, if you install the "menu"

In KDE, you can just right-click on the menu, and choose edit menus. But it's
better to use the menu package, even if you need to manually add a menu
entry. To do that with menu, you just need to copy a file, and edit the
program name and command to match yours, then run the update-menus program.
That way, the system will "know" about the menu item, and can take care of it
for you in future.
The easiest way, however, is to just an an icon to your panel, that runs that
program, by right-clicking on the panel.
Again, though, you shouldn't really have to worry about any of this -- it'll
probably just be there.
