I enjoy using terminal, I really do, yet sometimes having a visual shortcut when using an OS may be a nice perk.
In the case of applications that helps avoiding a myriad of open terminal windows holding execution of each software you’re currently running.
So without further waiting, here are the necessary steps:
- open terminal
- create new .desktop file: $touch android-studio.desktop
- edit it: (vim/gedit/anytexteditor) android-studio.desktop
- Save it and you’re done with it
If your distribution has a launcher instead of placing your .desktop file inside the Desktop folder move it to the local applications folder:
mv /pathto/app.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
This will do the trick
