Bug Description

Binary package hint: xbubble

XBubble, a lightweight rewrite of Frozen Bubble (frozen-bubble) doesn't add itself to the Applications --> Games menu once installed. I've tested this in Karmic and in Lucid using the latest versions in the repositories. I've also tried it in GNOME, Xfce, and LXDE environments - the behavior (or lack thereof) is the same.

What I expected to happen:
After installing xbubble, either by Synaptic, the commandline, or the software center (or PackageKit, etc.) A shortcut to XBubble should be added to the Applications --> Games menu, as would be the case with any other game.

What happened instead:
No shortcut was added. Sure, I can open the terminal and type "XBubble", or manually add a shortcut, but for the average user, they may not be comfortable doing that. We need to find out why XBubble isn't adding itself automatically upon installation and fixing it.

Thanks for reporting this issue.

When installing xbubble version on Ubuntu Quantal, it does not add a menu item. This package needs a desktop file.
