Actually above files are installed by:

install( FILES kruler.desktop DESTINATION ${XDG_APPS_INSTALL_DIR} )
install( FILES uninstall.desktop DESTINATION ${APPS_INSTALL_DIR}/Graphics 
RENAME kruler.desktop )

install() can intall two files only if there are two file arguments, like:

install( FILES file1 file2 DESTINATION /path/to/destination )

PS if you want to port to cmake indepenent apps, you can follow 
knetworkmaneger, d3lphin or amarok.
