Custom Launcher for Unity

I wanted to create a custom launcher for ubuntu unity oneiric, in order to start my own shell script HORST. I learned it from here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/34597/how-do-i-make-a-custom-launcher-for-terminal-applications

  • create a new document named HORST
  • open it with gedit and fill it with
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=My Server
Comment=Login to my server
Exec=gnome-terminal --disable-factory --sm-client-disable --class=HORST -e "sh /home/stefan/Documents/Linux\ Scripts/HORST_02.sh"
StartupWMClass=MyServer
Terminal=false
X-MultipleArgs=false
Type=Application
Icon=utilities-terminal
StartupNotify=true
  • rename the file to HORST.desktop
  • drag it to the launcher bar
  • that’s it
