I now have an up to date freeorion in a directory accessable by command line.
How do I get that to be noticed so that I can click on an icon and install it in a game folder?
I did just check and it is not on the desktop nor in the Games folder accessible by using Menu.

Woot! Congrats on making it through that!

Exact details will vary a bit, but as a general matter I expect you can right-click on that Menu you mention and you should probably get some sort of option to edit applications, which will then pull a little interface that will let you add an item to your Games submenu. Besides the "Name' you will specify for your menu listing, the key part is the 'command', which will be the full path to your freeorion executable, perhaps
Code:
/home/sean/src-tarball/freeorion_build/freeorion
based on what you've shown above, but to doublecheck the path you could navigate to that directory and then enter
Code:
pwd


A suitable icon to choose for it can be found at /default/data/art/icons/FO_Icon_64x64.png (or perhaps one of the other sizes of icon there)
