I recently downloaded CrashPlan for my laptop running 12.04. It installed a shortcut to the desktop to the GUI which is pointing at /usr/local/crashplan/bin/CrashPlanDesktop (a shell script). This is all good and well, but I would rather remove the icon and be able to launch it by pressing the super key and searching for "crash" so that I don't have to keep the icon on my desktop. However, it doesn't show up in the results.
Why is this? And is there to make it appear in the search results?
