I personally dont prefer running commands in terminal to achieve a task and prefer apps to execute the job.
Creating launcher for apps is one such command where I prefer the gnome-desktop-item-edit application for creating launchers. If the gnome package is installed, just searching "create launcher" opens the app. I have created launchers for windows app on wine installation using create launcher
But, it doesnt serve any purpose, because for starters the application cannot create launchers for various apps without root permission and the location where the apps have to be created.
Usually the launcher apps with root permission can be created at /usr/share/applications and without root permission at /.local/share/applications. I dont prefer the latter location as it is vulnerable to deletion.
Hence, in order to create the launchers through gnome with root, everytime I am forced to open this through terminal using the below command!
$ sudo gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/.local/share/applications --create-new
I dont want to open terminal everytime I want to create an application launcher on unity!
I am able to lock the "Create Launcher" App in the Launcher, but not with root privileges
So I want to be able to create the "Create Launcher" app shortcut on unity with default root privileges and for the app to create the launchers at usr/share/applications by default!
P.S. I dont have enough rep points to add screenshots to help with the question!
