I created an executable
.desktop file in my Desktop which should launch a GUI application along with displaying an icon in dock, but in Ubuntu 17.10 icon is not displaying in dock:
In previous Ubuntu versions (14.04 to 17.04) I didn't face this issue.
In Ubuntu 17.10 no 3rd party applications with icons as executables are being launched by default, It's asking for trust and launch to proceed.
How can I give the launchers default execute permission, or whatever permission is needed to avoid getting this dialog?
The executable was created by compiling in Ubuntu 14.04 to support backward compatibility.
.desktop file created to display the icon contains:
#!/usr/bin/env/ xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=MDM Comment=MAVLDM Terminal=false X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=example-content MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml+xml;application/xml;application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml;application/rss+xml;application/rdf+xml;image/gif;image/jpeg;image/png;x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;x-scheme-handler/ftp;x-scheme-handler/chrome; StartupNotify=false OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity; X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.20 Path=/home/ravi/Downloads/MDM Exec=/home/ravi/Downloads/MDM/MAVLDM Icon=/home/ravi/Downloads/MDM/mavldm.png
Is this changed in Ubuntu 17.10?
/home/ravi/Downloads/MDM/mavldm.png) exist? If yes, 2. Click on "Activities" and search for "MDM". Does it show the icon?
