In gnome I can create a shortcut to an application by placing the .dektop file in the ~/.local/share/applications/, like this
cat > ~/.local/share/applications/vscode.desktop <<EOL [Desktop Entry] Exec=/media/data/sas/devel/opt/code/code %f Icon=/media/data/sas/devel/opt/code/visual-studio-code-green.png Terminal=false Type=Application Name=vscode Comment=Editor for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications Categories=Development;WebDevelopment;IDE;Utility;TextEditor; EOL
So I can press the super key ad just start typing
code to run it
How can I achieve the same with kde 5???
Using Kubuntu 18.04, kde plasma 5.12.7, kde framework 5.44
edit: just had to create the folder and everything worked as expected, sorry...
