How do you create a custom application launcher in Gnome Shell?
I have a local Eclipse installation that I'd like to be to quickly launch. So I created a symlink to the
eclipse binary and placed it on my desktop. If I open a terminal,
cd to ~/Desktop and run
./eclipse it starts Eclipse perfectly. However, if I click the Eclipse icon on my desktop, and choose
run, nothing happens.
Alternatively, I wouldn't mind being able to search for Eclipse on the "Activities" screen, but I can't find any documentation on adding or registering custom applications.
