After modifying a desktop file in
/usr/share/applications, I need to refresh the launcher icon application menu so that my modification shows up.
For the sake of clarity, the menu that should get modified is the one that appears with a right click when the pointer is on an icon of the launcher (the big bar full of icon on the left side of the screen).
Best answer would be a simple command line.
I am not using ubuntu-2d and I don't want to logout/login.
I'm aware of some partial solution:
unity --replacereloads everything (window decoration, notification area, …)
killall ubuntu-2d-launcheris ubuntu-2d only, but if a similar one-line command exists for unity, that would be a good solution.
- logging out then logging back in works also, but I can't afford loosing all my session just to update the menu.
- on ubuntu 14.04 I don't have this issue: any changes made to "*.desktop" files seems to be repercuted live.
Any suggestions ? Is there a way thanks to ccsm ?
