I know how to create a .desktop file in
~/.local/share/applications/ and add it to the Launcher (just drag it from Files onto the Launcher), but the problems are:
- I can't find the shortcut via Dash. Typing its name reveals nothing.
- The shortcut is gone from the Launcher after a reboot.
The instructions at Adding a .desktop file to the Unity Launcher just don't work. My files validate, and I've run
desktop-file-install, but they still don't show up in the Dash search.
I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and here's the contents of the
