I would like to open a specific file directly from the launcher.
I have created a launcher (myFile.desktop) of type Location, which works like a charm when on the Desktop. I moved it to
~/.local/share/applications/ so I can find it over the dash. But I cannot stick it to the laucher (which again is no problem, if I change the type to Application, but then of course it doesn't work any more).
Is this even possible?
I created the laucher via
gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
And the .desptop file looks like:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Link URL=smb://myServer/userhomes/myFiles/arbeitszeit/Zeitkontrolle_6.ods Name=Zeiterfassung Icon=/home/andsoon/icon.png
