I created some launchers using the Main Menu application, and sorted them, for instance in "Games". They are well listed in the Unity Dash when I click on "All installed applications".

However they are not listed in the Dash category called "Games". Is this a bug? How do I change it?

I have version 0.2.46-0ubuntu3 of unity-place-applications.


In order to have applications listed in the appropriate category we may edit it's .desktop file (e.g. found in ~/.local/share/ or in /usr/share/applications). Replace or add the desired category like:

[Desktop Entry]

With an application update .desktop entry files outside your $HOME may be replaced.
