- Launcher duplicate iconless icon 1 answer
I have an application which doesn't come from any ubuntu repo (neither official, nor ppa) but available as tgz and supposed to be unpacked and ready to use. To be precise it is LightTable. The problem is the application when launched shows it's own icon n unity panel. After making custom .desktop file and placing shortcut onto unity panel (by dragging from dash launcher) and launching it I see two icons - one placed by me and another one with real application.
This is the .desktop contents:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/opt/LightTable/LightTable Name=Light Table Icon=/opt/LightTable/core/img/lticon.png
One more thing. The
/opt/LightTable/LightTable is bash script file and eventually
/opt/LightTable/ltbin is being launched. I think this is the problem but have no idea how to fix the problem.
