Desktop environments look for .desktop files in /usr/share/applications and ~/.local/share/applications directories to show them in their application menus. How did you make AppImages visible in the application menu in the first place? Did you manually create desktop files or use an AppImage integrator?
Hi, I have downloaded Tutanota AppImage and run it from terminal, it asked for desktop integration like @vgaetera said, and it created ~/.local/share/applications/appimagekit-tutanota-desktop.desktop file when I clicked yes. Here is its content:
Comment=The desktop client for Tutanota, the secure e-mail service.
X-AppImage-Comment=Generated by /tmp/.mount_tutanowJ17MH/AppRun
Then I deleted it and run it from terminal, it asked for desktop integration and created desktop file again. But since it is located in user’s home directory, a system upgrade shouldn’t delete them. Are you sure you don’t have them in the ~/.local/share/applications directory?
If i create this .txt file in the directory like this, not sure what inputs exactly I should put, I prefer to avoid this if I can but I have other app images I run that I would love to intergrate with gnome in fedora like clipgrab and zohomail for my business’s
