Please can someone explain how to add a launcher icon in Unity (along the left side) for Vim – or any other terminal-based application?
I press alt+f2, type
vim, and drag the icon to the left … but the launcher does not accept the dragged item.
Assuming that to launch vim in a terminal I should launch
gnome-terminal -e vim, my question is how do I get this command as a button in the Unity launcher?
