Pity that gnome-shell's launcher shows only a few characters of the application's name. That's why I'd like to rename e.g. "web-browser firefox" into just "firefox".
Previous versions of gnome had a working Alacarte program which allowed to do what I need.
Now Alacarte shows this error while trying to enter the applications preferences:
File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MainWindow.py", line 391, in on_edit_properties_activate process = subprocess.Popen(['gnome-desktop-item-edit', file_path], env=os.environ) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 679, in __init__ errread, errwrite) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1249, in _execute_child raise child_exception
How do I rename an application without alacarte?
