I have a better way.  This did not work for me on Trisquel.

My experience: Apps appeared in the main menu, but GNOME was not aware
of them.  Icons were missing, Emacs would never show up in "Open With",
and I couldn't launch Mumble from Run Application (Alt+F2).

(Thanks, ADFENO!)

GNOME sees apps and icons now!

Remaining hurdles:
      * Buttons don't show up, themes don't match:
      * Fcitx Mozc input method for Japanese does not work in Guix apps
