Deeper Integration with the Desktop

This chapter contains a list of things which you can do to make your application have better integration with GNOME than the absolute minimum. For example, GNOME is able to display feedback while an application is being launched: you can see how to enable this feedback in Section 2.1 ― Startup notification. Also, if your software creates documents or other "printable" data, you can install a thumbnailer utility to let the GNOME file manager create thumbnail images specific to your program.
