For reference, I'm currently using Ubuntu 11.04 running on an Asus EeePC 1001HA, running Unity-2D.
I've been trying to add Quicklists into my Unity Launcher, following instructions from this AskUbuntu question. So what I do is I:
- Copy the requested
- Make my edits.
- Logout and login again to reflect the new changes.
This doesn't work -- the quicklists doesn't appear when I right-click them.
What I do next is...
- Open Nautilus, and find the
- Right-click the Launcher icon I want to replace, and select "Remove From Launcher".
- Drag the
*.desktopfiles I want to use on launcher directly.
The icon appears, but the quicklist doesn't, when I right-click the icon. This persists even after restarts.
As an example, here's my
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Google Chrome # Only KDE 4 seems to use GenericName, so we reuse the KDE strings. # From Ubuntu's language-pack-kde-XX-base packages, version 9.04-20090413. GenericName=Web Browser # Not translated in KDE, from Epiphany 2.26.1-0ubuntu1. GenericName[fil]=Web Browser # Gnome and KDE 3 uses Comment. Comment=Access the Internet Exec=/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity Terminal=false Icon=google-chrome Type=Application Categories=Network;WebBrowser; MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml_xml;x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;x-scheme-handler/ftp; X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=NewWindow;Incognito; [NewWindow Shortcut Group] Name=New Window Exec=google-chrome TargetEnvironment=Unity [Incognito Shortcut Group] Name=New incognito window Exec=google-chrome --incognito TargetEnvironment=Unity
I definitely know that dragging the
*.desktop file to the Launcher works -- if I change the
exec directive to include
--incognito, the browser does launch in incognito mode.
But for some strange reason the quicklist doesn't appear. Is this there an issue with how my Unity-2D is set up, or aren't quicklists supported by Unity-2D?
