I currently launch android studio by going to
/path-to-android-studio/bin and running
./studio.sh and it works fine.
However, I want to create a launcher on the Dash and side menu for launching it easily.
After going through some other questions like this, I first tried the Tools > Create Desktop Entry method. It did create an entry on the dash, but somehow Android Studio does not launch by clicking on it. If it's of any help, I am pasting the
jetbrains-android-studio.desktop entry this method created in the
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Android Studio Icon=/home/jayant/Android/android-studio/bin/androidstudio.svg Exec="/home/jayant/Android/android-studio/bin/studio.sh" %f Comment=Develop with pleasure! Categories=Development;IDE; Terminal=false StartupWMClass=jetbrains-android-studio
When this didn't help, I deleted the above mentioned
.desktop entry and tried the method mentioned in this blog post, which required me to create the following
jetbrains-android-studio.desktop file and paste it in
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Android Studio Exec="/home/jayant/Android/android-studio/bin/studio.sh" %f Icon=/home/jayant/Android/android-studio/bin/idea.png Categories=Development;IDE; Terminal=false StartupNotify=true StartupWMClass=jetbrains-android-studio
This also created an icon in my Dash but Android Studio refuses to launch with this also. Is there something I am doing wrong? I just want a simple launcher icon for Android Studio on my dash! I am using Ubuntu 14.04.
