Just built HandBrake-1.0.1 from tarball with a great deal of help from The HandBrake Team.
After running sudo make install all was well except that the executable was put in my /usr/local/bin directory.
How may I put the HandBrake icon and title in my “start menu”
Will other users be able to see and use HandBrake on this computer. I was under the impression they would but not if executable is in the directory it is surely. Where should it be and how should I have installed it to achieve all this?

Use Budgie2 wants it available for all users AFAIK, hence the need to
set this in a system-wide ‘standard’ locale…

Decided to uninstall and install using your suggestion. System didn’t like --prefix=/usr. I checked out man install and --prefix is not there so I must be misunderstanding you.
Grateful for further guidance please.
My problem (apart from my general ignorance,) was that there were no install instructions in the tarball. I just used ./configure, make and make install as usual. There were very many libraries to install and a small change to ./make/include/main.defs before make would run without errors. Needed much help from HandBrake Team.
The suggested DESTDIR line didn’t give what I needed. Bottom line is that your first suggestion of a soft link works when I edit the Applications > Multimedia menu and loh and behold an icon has appeared there alongside my edit so I am content but remain ignorant. Nothing done about mime.
Thanks for the help.
