I'm trying to create a custom launcher for Aptana Studio in my Cairo Dock. I begun by right click → Add custom launcher and I'm stuck at entering the command? What am I supossed to put in there (I tried ./AptanaStudio3 - but it doesn't work). I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.

I have already created an Aptana Studio 3.desktop file and it has an icon; my only problem is I cannot put it into my cairo dock.

How do I create a custom launcher in Cairo Dock for Aptanan Studio?

Aptana Studio 3 doesn't have a launcher icon

sudo gnome-desktop-item-edit /usr/share/applications/ --create-new

to create a launcher , then drag and drop it into cairo dock

  • Actually by default the Applications Menu applet is enabled, so you can just drag any program from this menu into the dock. – Hany Alsamman Oct 8 '13 at 5:30
  • That's wierd. cause when im running aptana it automatically be in my dock but when i close it it will also be gone on cairo. What i do on my other application is that I run it so it will be on my dock and then right clicking on it and click the "make it a Launcher" option. that just doesnt work on aptana same goes with update manager. – Darren Jude Oct 8 '13 at 5:37

What I just found that works is dragging the AptanaStudio3.desktop file from wherever you have it stored right onto Cairo Dock. Works like a charm!
