To create a desktop launcher, open up a text editor (e.g. ALT+F2
gedit) and paste in:
If you don't have an icon, you can leave that line out. Save the file as "Groovenet.desktop" in your Desktop folder (
Now you need to make it executable, so open up a terminal and enter
sudo chmod +x Groovenet.desktop
That should be it.
If you don't like using the terminal, a graphical way of doing the same thing using gnome-panel is possible too, it's in the Ubuntu documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UnityLaunchersAndDesktopFiles).
Another way of solving the same problem would be to assign a keyboard shortcut to open the program, which you might find more useful/quicker.
System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Custom Shortcuts create a new shorcut. In the "Command:" box, enter
gnome-terminal --tab -e "/Downloads/GrooveNet-master/project/bin/groovenet". Give it a name and click Apply, then assign it a keyboard shortcut of your choice.
