If you're asking how to install menu shortcuts in a Linux gui, then you
should see the Freedesktop menu specification
(http://freedesktop.org/Standards/menu-spec). It defines a standard
method for describing a "start" menu on Linux, and I believe it's
currently used by both KDE and Gnome. Basically, you'd have to write a
simple xml formatted file with a .desktop extension, declaring the
executable's location, position in the menu, icon to use, etc. You'd
then copy this file to $XDG_DATA_DIRS/applications/
(/usr/share/applications/ on Fedora). The link to SPE should then
automatically in appear in the menu.
