Desktop file not available to use with plank/docky/lxpanel/tint2/etc



  • I've wanted to use freeter and be able to save its icon so that its very easy to restart from my plank (plank is a launcher in linux [1]) so I've ended up adapting freeter's own desktop file. This is at ~/.local/share/applications/appimagekit-Freeter.desktop, and needs the last three lines adding. My complete desktop file is here -

    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=Freeter
    Comment=Freeter for Linux
    Exec=/home/boudiccas/programmes/appimage/Freeter.AppImage %U
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Icon=appimagekit-Freeter
    X-AppImage-Version=1.2.1
    X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.23
    X-AppImage-Comment=Generated by /tmp/.mount_LJ6jmt/AppRun
    TryExec=/home/boudiccas/programmes/appimage/Freeter.AppImage
    StartupNotify=true
    StartupWMClass=freeter
    Name[en_GB]=Freeter Pro
    

    Obviously you change things in lines 4 and 11 to suit your situation, and add the last three lines but changing line 14 if you're not a pro user to just -

    Name[en_GB]=Freeter
    

    And now its working perfectly.
