When I create a starter file, unity does not display the icon with the name

Desktop display

Is it because of Unity or Ubuntu with gnome?

  • what are you trying to do? if you miss starters in the desktop-environment you'd might want to look copy the *.desktop-files to ~/.local/share/applications/ and then edit them. – db429 Nov 28 '18 at 23:27
  • you also don't have executable rights on these files. but what is it you're trying to achieve? – db429 Nov 28 '18 at 23:33
  • I have all the rights for folders and starters, everyone of the starters has "execute" permission. This is happening with any starter that I create. – LeLorrain Nov 28 '18 at 23:54
  • This is also happening with starters created by PlayonLinux or Steam. – LeLorrain Nov 28 '18 at 23:57
  • still (mostly) all "starters" show in the menus? right? what are you trying to achieve? a *.desktop-file is not like an *.exe-file in Windows; perhaps read these two, then you might better understand: askubuntu.com/questions/281293/… askubuntu.com/questions/117341/how-can-i-find-desktop-files – db429 Nov 29 '18 at 1:37
