I upgraded Eclipse yesterday to version 4.3 and was faced with the missing menus bug. To get the menus back one has to start Eclipse in a different way, thus I tried to create a new item in the Main Menu.
For some reason the item is not stored by the Main Menu, I get no error messages when I click the OK button in the new item dialogue, but nothing changes in the Application group.
Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
Update I: user wilf tells me to add a file named
/usr/share/applications but this has not created an new item in the Main Menu:
Update II: Here's how my
eclipse.dektop file looks like:
$ ls -la /usr/share/applications/e* -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3083 May 11 2012 /usr/share/applications/easytag.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 167 Jan 25 17:02 /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 921 Oct 31 20:30 /usr/share/applications/empathy.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 856 Jun 29 2013 /usr/share/applications/eog.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 894 Oct 8 23:21 /usr/share/applications/evince.desktop -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 873 Oct 8 23:21 /usr/share/applications/evince-previewer.desktop $ cat /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Eclipse Icon=eclipse Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=/usr/local/eclipse.kepler/eclipse Terminal=false Categories=Development;IDE;Java;
Beyond this, is there any other way to get the Eclipse icon showing up in the dash?
