Add programs to main menu on Gnome 3

An altenative to alacarte to add program to gnome could be do it in manual way:

1.- Go to /usr/share/applications

2.- Create a new .desktop file (typically the name of your application with the .desktop extension). A good idea can be to copy one of the existing files to use it as a template. I used the eclipse.desktop one myself.

3.- Fill all the fields. (you could get an example from other .desktop files in the same url)
