I think he's saying that on a Linux desktop, if you define a launcher for
an application the default assumption is that its a graphical
application. If so, all you need to do is to tell the launcher the
program name, what icon to use and what text to put under it. If the
application isn't graphical, you do the same as above and also tell the
launcher that the program must run in a console window. Simple. Logical.
I assume that what I've just described applies to OS X and virtually all
other graphical desktops: I wouldn't know from personal experience
because I don't use them.
