Is there a way to make a launcher (icon) on Unity panel from Nautilus's bookmarks or it is for programs only?
I wrote a script to do that autmatically. See:
If you press super(winkey)+f or click "Files and folders" on your launcher, then Favorite folders are Nautilus bookmarks. If you want a menu in the notification area, then that's certainly possible to make, but I don't know of any existing ones. It should be fairly easy though.
Seems to only be for Programs at this point, I've just made a custom launcher and set it to Location and entered the command so it would open up where I wanted it to, then I went into Terminal and did gksudo nautilus and then navigated my way to home/username/Desktop and copied the launcher to usr/share/applications. Then I dragged the launcher to unity but it didn't stay.
If you'd like to place icons in Unity, say for example Wine programs that you've installed then I have the following instructions for you.
1 - Right click your desktop
2 - Select Create Launcher
3 - Create the custom Launcher as you want to
Now you got the launcher on the Desktop. If you are satisfied with it, get it in the Launcher Panel:
4 - Open Nautilus as root. Press Alt + F2 and paste gksu nautilus
5 - Browse to /home/your-username/Desktop
6 - Copy the launcher by clicking right on it and select Copy
7 - Browse to /usr/share/applications
8 - Paste your launcher by clicking right on a blank space and select Paste
9 - Now drag and drop your launcher from /usr/share/applications to the Launcher Bar on the left on your Screen
10 - You can now delete your custom Launcher on the Desktop.
