  • how to manually create a launcher for unity for ubuntu 12.04 ?

    hello friends

    I have a problem is not that I create a launcher in unity in order to start SpringSource Tool Suite in ubuntu

    I'm not sure if you can do like this:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    wanted the shortcut to call my new eclipse I had installed under /opt. Here is how to:

    $ gedit ~/.local/share/applications/eclipse.desktop
    And enter the following in the file:
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    StartupNotify=true
    Icon=/opt/eclipse/icon.xpm
    Name=Eclipse Indigo 3.7
    Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 /opt/eclipse/eclipse
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    if anyone knows how to fix it would appreciate

    Thanks

    Since no-one else is responding... I'll give it a try.
    I'm still on Ubuntu 10.04 and I don't use the Unity interface myself. (I like the old gnome 2 interface too much to switchjust yet :-)
    So I can't really provide help from first-hand knowledge.

    But I did find this link which I think is explaining how to create a 'launcher' for a specific command in Unity.
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/10652...nd-shellscript

    I hope that helps.
