I have installed the Rosetta Stone language learning software successful with Wine. When I click and drag the Rosetta Stone icon from the Dash to the launcher, the other icons make way for it, but when I release the mouse button the icon doesn't stay.

How can I lock the application to the launcher?

Try this:

  • run the app
  • right-click its icon
  • select "keep the launcher in dock" or similarly named option.

EDIT: it didn't work, so second way:

  • install Alacarte or menulibre (these are menu editors)
  • create a custom launcher with command like wine "/home/<your_username>/Downloads/Rosetta Stone.exe"
  • drag it from menu to the dock.

It should work, but if we aren't lucky, you may have two icons when the app is running - the launcher you created and wine icon (because wine will be running).

  • I did. It kept a Wine icon there. Upon clicking it it did nothing but throb. – Richard Feb 17 '14 at 0:39
  • Hmmm... Maybe it just pinned Wine without any app to run. You can install alacarte. It's a menu editor. Then you can create a custom launcher with command like wine "/home/<your_username>/Downloads/Rosetta Stone.exe". Then drag it from menu to the dock. (In the worst case you will have two icons when the app is running.) – user31389 Feb 17 '14 at 15:59
