I downloaded Android Studio and I have a folder named android-studio in my Downloads folder. I can launch it with

cd ~/Downloads/android-studio/bin 

and then


(It's strange, by the way, that I already have execute permissions on this file...)

Anyway, how can I add Android Studio to Dash, so that I can launch it as all the other apps? If I lock it to Launcher, and then try to open it from there, nothing happens.


Select "Create desktop entry" from the menu on Welcome Dialog
