I create a launcher for Ingtellij Idea by writing a custom .desktop file.
[Desktop Entry] Version=13.3 Name=Intellij Idea Comment= Type=Application Categories=Developoment,IDE Exec=/home/sravinda/idea-IU-135.690/bin/idea.sh Terminal=false StartupNotify=true Icon=/home/sravinda/idea-IU-133.331/bin/idea.png Name[en_US]=Intellij Idea
I put it to ~/.local/share/applications. I get and launcher and I added that to the unity side bar. When I launch the application another icon appear in the side bar. Which is different from other applications. There same icon represent the launched application with small bracket on left of the icon. Any one have idea why is that.
