I am using Zend Studio in Gnome Shell and I can launch Zend Studio from the folder binary file, but I don't get the option to lock it to the dash as a favorite.

Any idea on how I can go about doing that?

The following link is for unity but it works for gnome 3 as well.

I created "/usr/share/applications/zendstudio.desktop" with the following contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Zend Studio
GenericName=PHP IDE
X-GNOME-FullName=Zend Studio PHP IDE
Comment=PHP IDE

The ZendStudio directory is under my /usr/local/lib/. In Gnome 3 I can search for the application.
