This is an excellent operational program and great for instructional purposes .
I have one suggestion though . I got it all installed fine but not being versed in adding menu items was unable to do so . perhaps you could expand that process or link to it somewhere just to complete your excellent work.

Do it exactly like in README.txt. Important is to copy tempconverter.desktop file to /usr/share/applications
Then you will find Entry in Utility Menu

I use Puppy Linux , XenialPup64-7.5.1 I have put the desktop file in /usr/share/applications as above and there are many more but it still does not display in my menu . I would like to understand why.

Ok, inside file tempconverter.desktop must be written
Categories=Utility;
Then it Works
