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 ) 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 -
And now its working perfectly.
