If I install an .exe file on wine a desktop program application shortcut (launcher) is created on the desktop including the icon (picture) of the application. In the application menu it is shown the progrom application shortcut as well but with picture icon.
What is wrong there that no picture icon is shown there?
Or at least as a workaround how can I copy the desktop shortcut to the application launcher?
Thanks, but it does not work. After moving it to the folder ~/applications you can (still) start the desktop icon in this folder but it still does not appear in the application launcher (see attachment).
You got the advice to run that command, but nobody mentioned sudo … don’t run sudo commands in your home directory.
Also, was asked for an example of the desktop file as the content of it, as text. Open it in a text editor and as i said already
If I run only ’ update-desktop-database’ this messages comes up. So no use.
The databases in [/home/rulinux/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share/applications, /var/lib/flatpak/exports/share/applications, /usr/local/share/applications, /usr/share/applications, /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications] could not be updated.
Yes, it is a real directory. Sometimes I do not understand your meanings. Maybe it is I am not a native speaker or you explain clearer.
I believe we are on the wrong track. Where are all the other program desktop icons located which are shown in the application launcher? If we simply add it there (PhotoLine.desktop file) into that folder. It should be fine, isn’t it?
That is not a proper path for icon, nor name … that .0 is some funky thing. You can use the name of an icon if the system icon theme has it. You have to use full path, meaning the exact location of the file.
Those either come with the native linux applications or with the system icon theme you are using.
These files are shown in the folder with picture. They are excutable within the folder and the application launcher. But in the application launcher they are without picture icon shown. That is all my problem not less and not more.
