How to export an app/tool from toolbox?

there is distrobox-export with which you can export from distrobox. How can I export from toolbox?

The app should be created in your user space of the system (your ~/appdir) so you shouldn’t have to export anything from Toolbox.

Toolbox developers have rejected adding a similar feature in the past out of a somewhat baffling fear of encroaching on flatpak:

You can do it manually pretty easily. From inside the container, copy the .desktop file from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications and edit Exec= to invoke toolbox run.

The icon can similarly be copied from /usr/share/icons/hicolor/.../apps.

@jakfrost unfortunately it doesn’t show up.

@chrisawi thank you. I went for the distrobox solution, it’s easy to use, and it seems to be more mature and sufficient for my personal use case.
