I installed kdegames and in the launcher, some of those games went into the 'system' catagory, and some went into the 'games' catagory.

How do i move the games in the system catagory into the games catagory?

thanx in advance

All settings can be found in a folder /usr/share/applications

I am in the /usr/share/applications folder and there are no settings at all besides some useless "bamf.index" and "mimeapps.*" files. Where are the settings?

Here you'll find a  generic how-to procedure, for those misplacement cases.

Open deepin-terminal, and run
  1. cd /usr./share/applications
  2. ls *.desktop
Copy the Code
You'll see all the shortcuts known by the deepin launcher. Locate a shortcut currently belonging to the category you want to place kdegames into (steam, for example)
Open it via nano (or vi)
  1. nano steam.desktop
Copy the Code
Locate the line "categories" (at the very begining of the file), and copy it into the clipboard (ctrl+shit+c)
For example, my steam category is
  1. Categories=Network;FileTransfer;Game;
Copy the Code
now open kdegames.desktop (with sudo, because we're going to modify it)
  1. sudo nano kdegames.desktop
Copy the Code

Replace the line "categories" within the kdegames.desktop, with the one copied into your clipboard.
Feel free to replace Network and FileTransfer sub entries with someting more accurate.
Nota: Unlike the "steam.desktop" file,  categories line is usually located at the end  of the ".desktop" files..
Save the file and exit deepin-terminal.

You may have to logout (or at least invoke deepin-launcher twice), to see the kdegames now located into the right section.
