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.
