gnucash does not install a menu entry

Bug #33653 reported by John Steele Scott
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnucash (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I was reading the Dapper Desktop Guide today and came across a section about gnucash. It says:

To open GnuCash, type "gnucash" in a terminal, or press Alt-F2 and type
"gnucash". You can add a menu entry for gnucash easily with Alacarte Menu Editor.

Doesn't that just sound stupid? But it's not the doc-team's fault. I've been doing it for years myself with the Alt-F2 method, but I wouldn't expect a "normal" user to do it.

Can we have a menu entry for Gnucash?

After further investigation, I find that there is a desktop file, and it is supposed to be installed, but it doesn't end up in any deb file. Someone needs to add /usr/share/applications to gnucash-common.install.
