I'm launching tor browser from my home folder. I want it's shortcut to be placed in my start menu. I'm using xubuntu 18.04.
I tried the following but the shortcut is not appearing in start menu.
ln -s /path/to/start-tor-browser.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/ ln -s /path/to/start-tor-browser.desktop /usr/share/applications/
Here is the content of its .desktop file.
#!/usr/bin/env ./Browser/execdesktop # # This file is a self-modifying .desktop file that can be run from the shell. # It preserves arguments and environment for the start-tor-browser script. # # Run './start-tor-browser.desktop --help' to display the full set of options. # # When invoked from the shell, this file must always be in a Tor Browser root # directory. When run from the file manager or desktop GUI, it is relocatable. # # After first invocation, it will update itself with the absolute path to the # current TBB location, to support relocation of this .desktop file for GUI # invocation. You can also add Tor Browser to your desktop's application menu # by running './start-tor-browser.desktop --register-app' # # If you use --register-app, and then relocate your TBB directory, Tor Browser # will no longer launch from your desktop's app launcher/dock. However, if you # re-run --register-app from inside that new directory, the script # will correct the absolute paths and re-register itself. # # This file will also still function if the path changes when TBB is used as a # portable app, so long as it is run directly from that new directory, either # via the shell or via the file manager.
