I created a custom desktop file and placed it in
~/.local/share/applications but it doesn't appear when I show all applications, I then tried to put it in
/usr/share/applications to no avail.
I can still run it by double click in Ubuntu 18.10, but I can't in Kubuntu 18.10 with the same file (it returned error about invalid desktop file or malformatted).
There's something so wrong here, because I did the same thing hundreds of time before in the previous versions and never did I encouter this problem.
May anyone know anything about this?

Edit: I don't know why but after restarting, I can't open it in Ubuntu anymore. It says
There was an error launching the application. In Kubuntu, it returns
KDEInit could not launch 'spyder3': Could not open library 'libkdeinit5_spyder3'. Cannot load library libkdeinit5_spyder3: (libkdeinit5_spyder3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
