OS: Lubuntu 19.04
I downloaded SMPlayer for YouTube and want to add it to my taskbar as a shortcut. But there is no icon in the app menu. I just type its name and the app starts.
How to add an icon and how to add to taskbar?
Open terminal using Alt + Ctrl + T and type
smtube. It should open SMTube.
Create a text file with the name SMTube.desktop
Paste the following text on it
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Icon[en_US]=/home/subhadipl/Desktop/player.ico Name[en_US]=SmTube Exec=/usr/bin/smtube Comment[en_US]=Start SmTube Name=SmTube Comment=Start SmTube Icon=/home/subhadipl/Desktop/player.ico
Change the icon and name as per your choice.
keep it on your desktop, right click, and open properties, permission tab and check 'Allow executing file as program'.
This will create a shortcut for smtube. Hope this helps.
