I had the same problem. Changing the eclipse.ini file as mentioned by #LuteceTheCrab seems to work only when eclipse is launched from the command prompt. However the unity launcher doesn't seem to respect the configuration in the eclipse.ini file. Upon reading the eclipse.ini in ~/.local/share/applications directory, I realized that the Exec attribute value ...

I'm not positive about this, but I think the icon you're referring to is set by the application itself. Therefore, to change the icon you have to either change it in the program settings (if possible) or alter the program's source code. I know for a fact that this is how an app I wrote works; I don't know if all are this way, though.

The scroll feature in the Unity launcher is not about restoring or minimizing windows. It is for scrolling through the open windows for that application. If the app only has one window, then that's the only one that will open up, when scrolling. If it has multiple windows open, scrolling on that apps icon will cycle focus through the open windows.

There is no way to get Unity to show programs in categories. If you have only problems putting many programs into the left bar, you can shrink the buttons there (using Unity Tweak Tool). Otherwise, you can use Cinnamon instead of Unity to have most of the applets and searches and still retain the menu with programs ordered in categories. Another ...

It took me a while before I understood what you actually meant, but here is the answer: Missing WM_CLASS When you say: "when I click on it in the Dash, it opens first the actual μTox process, but that then hides itself and opens a different window called μTox (Alpha) (version: 0.8.1)" ...it is a small misinterpretation of what is happening; there is no ...

not unless you go into the code and hack it yourself, you will also need to deal with other code that assumes its full width. It would probably be easier to switch to something like gnome3 instead of unity of you want that behaviour.

The problem seems to have solved itself. The avatar has now updated. I haven't done anything to specifically update it, though I suspect the times I have rebooted may have made a difference. Didn't notice it before now. I was probably just being impatient.

The icons you see in the dash are defined in .desktop files. They live in two locations: For system wide ones: /usr/share/applications/ For user specific ones: /home/user/.local/share/applications/ (These override the system ones.) You can use an application called 'Alacarte' to edit them via a GUI or just find them in Nautilus, right click, and click ...

You already seem to know that you need to specify the window class in the .desktop file for the program to be grouped correctly. Since it does not get grouped correctly, these probably don't match. To find out the window class of your running application, do the following: - Start the application - start a terminal - run "xprop" in the terminal - click on ...

Both the eclipse.ini and launcher icon should be in the same extracted directory and there shouldn't be an issue with eclipse.desktop. Did you insert: --launcher.GTK_version 2 before --launcher.appendVmargs in eclipse.ini?

Launcher entries are .desktop files stored in /usr/share/applications or in ~/.local/share/applications. So you could just use cat on these files.
