I am running Ubuntu 16.04 in a VM (VMware). I recently ran out of disk space. So I created another virtual disk in the VM (extending the disk space of the VM). I moved few applications from /opt/ to the new partition /media/username/disk2/apps/, like Qt, Clion and intelliJ. So I updated the .desktop files in ~/.local/share/applications, but still not working. I ran the applications from their new path, and locked them on launch bar. But when I restart the VM, they all disappear! After looking aroung for a fix, I also tried running gtk-launch clion.desktop, still not running. The only app that remains on the launcher is google chrome. All others failed!

Any idea on how to fix this?
