O/S: Ubuntu GNOME 15.04 x64,
I would like to know why xterm/uxterm terminals are not showing up under the applications menu nor found when searched for. My second question is how do I make them show up on search/list of apps.
Xterm is installed (as per the default - /usr/bin/xterm) and I can see .desktop entries in
xterm.desktop. When I rename these .desktop files or move them to
~/.local/share/applications, the launchers appear. The launcher entries for xterm are alive and well in Ubuntu 14.04 (Unity) without any tinkering being needed.
I can understand the rationale of (appearing to) limit the number of terminals available and it's not affecting my work or anything serious. I would like to know more for my own knowledge rather than anything else.
