I wanted the program Arduino to be accessible from the dash, so I put this in
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Arduino IDE GenericName=Arduino IDE Comment=Open-source electronics prototyping platform Exec=/home/username/Programmer/arduino/arduino Icon=arduino Terminal=false Categories=Development;IDE;Electronics; MimeType=text/x-arduino; Keywords=embedded electronics;electronics;avr;microcontroller; StartupWMClass=processing-app-Base
I have a transparent png icon (600 x 315 pixels) called arduino.png in the same directory, but it didn't work. It says here :
Application icons should be available at least at a resolution of 48x48 pixels. Place the icon in
So I put it there, too, but I still don't have an Arduino icon associated with the desktop entry. How do I do this?
