i installed spyder3 and tried to add its launcher to the gnome panel. i could not get this to work... i tried several things:
i launched spyder3 and clicked on its icon in the panel hoping for an 'Add to Favourites' menu item - there is none.
i looked for a
$ dpkg -L spyder3 | grep '\.desktop'). it exists and is located at
/usr/share/applications/spyder3.desktop. i tried to drag+drop that to the panel. that did not work either.
i tried to add
spyder3.desktopon the command-line to the settings favourites (something like
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell favorite-apps "['firefox.desktop', ..., 'spyder3.desktop']"). logged out & in again. also that did not work.
i tried to create a custom spyder3 launcher using
$ gnome-desktop-item-edit. that does create an (executable)
.desktopfile but i could not add it to the launcher either.
is there a way to add a launcher for spyder3? how?
