Everything concerning this topic can be found on . For example 
describes the desktop entries, which make up menu entries in KDE and Gnome.
Also  describes where Desktop environments look for icons; see section
Directory Layout in that document. So if a blender.desktop file is included
and installed by the distribution and also an icon is put at the right place,
everything should be fine.
