This question already has an answer here:
I'm developing a program in Qt that will help users to manage (create, edit and delete) their quicklists in Unity launcher.
I got to a point where I created .desktop file and I don't know how to programmatically place that file on Unity launcher.
I found two (bad) ways to do this:
- Manually drag and drop created .desktop file to unity launcher
- Edit favorites key with "gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites" and force unity to reload with "unity --replace"
So, I'm searching for a function or a system command that is called on first 'drag and drop' method so I can do it in my program without need for user to do it manually.
I don't even know where (or how) to search for my solution so any suggestions will be helpfull.
