Sylpheed does not appear in KDE menus.

Sylpheed has an icon and .desktop file in its distribution. Here is the modified PKGBUILD to install these files to the usual places.
After this sylpheed appears in KDE menus

The new PKGBUILD - see the last two commands in build():
# $Id: PKGBUILD,v 1.29 2004/12/29 18:05:39 dorphell Exp $
# Maintainer: dorphell <>
pkgdesc="A GTK+ based, lightweight, and fast email client"
depends=('x-server' 'gdk-pixbuf' 'openssl')

build() {
cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-ssl
make || return 1
make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr install
install -D -m644 $pkgname.desktop \
install -D -m644 $pkgname.png \
