Hi people, I hope you can help me, I’ve tried every solution I’ve come across in google and Stack Overflow to no avail. I downloaded an application in compressed format (Eclipse IDE) and want to add the damn thing to the app menu. I’ve placed the file in ~/.local/share/applications and also in /usr/share/applications, given it execution permissions, validated and installed it through the desktop install command, nothing has worked. The file does not have any errors:
[Desktop Entry] Name=eclipse Comment=eclipse IDE Exec=/home/paulogarcia/software/eclipse/eclipse Icon=/home/paulogarcia/software/eclipse/icon.xpm Type=Application StartupNotify=false Categories=Development;IDE; Keywords=eclipse;
Every other app installed through dnf or snap has its entry in /usr/share/applications and works correctly on the app menu, what the hell is wrong with my system? Possibly a bug?
