Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I just download and unzipped Aptana Studio into /opt/AptanaStudio3, and ran the program /opt/AptanaStudio3/AptanaStudio3 using the Nautilus file explorer. It shows as an icon on the launcher when running, so I right-clicked the Launcher icon and checked Keep in Launcher.

Now when I click the launcher icon for Aptana Studio it is not launched. (Note: It's not currently running when I do this).

The funny thing is, the launcher tooltip for Aptana references an ini file like "Web - "my-path-to-Aptana/AptanaStudio3.ini - realname whereas the other programs in the Launcher (installed via Package manager) just have their real title name.

Considering all this, my question is: How can I get an unzipped file to be properly installed into the launcher?

change the path of the launcher icon to the path where you installed it –  Uri Herrera May 8 '11 at 6:51
I don't know how to do that. –  John K May 8 '11 at 6:53
