I installed the latest version of Eclipse onto Ubuntu 18.04 with the official installer from the Eclipse website, however I can't get it to appear on my favorites bar/dock.
I have tried dragging the executable file to the dock, but it doesn't work.
I can't find it with the "show applications" button. I can only run it by clicking on its executable file.
How can I get Eclipse to appear on the favorites bar/dock?
The .desktop file:
[Desktop Entry] Comment=Eclipse Terminal=false Name=Eclipse Exec=eclipse --profile-directory=/home/myName/eclipse/java-2018-09/eclipse Type=Application Icon=eclipse
This isn't a duplicate of this question because the same process doesn't work. Changing the text file to an executable doesn't work.
