I'm trying to make an icon (later in Application) for a software that I just downloaded. I unziped the .tar.gz. The unziped file contains bin and share directories. The bin directory contains the shell script for the application. (runs on terminal) I created the .desktop file as follows (in /~)
[Desktop Entry] Name=CopasiUI Exec=/home/ubuntu/Documents/Biologie/L3SV/S6/PPD/Copasi/bin/CopasiUI.sh Icon=/home/ubuntu/Documents/Biologie/L3SV/S6/PPD/Copasi/share/copasi/Copasi48-alpha.xpm Terminal=false Type=Application
I'm new in ubuntu and I feel the lack of knowledge in that matter.
From there it does not work yet. I get "There was an error launching the app"
Does not even show the icon I selected.
Can i just keep the
.desktop file in
~ to see if it's working?
Thank you for your answers.
(It worked without the .sh)
