    Netbeans icon won't show up in Unity Dash.

    Hello all, I installed Netbeans 7.2 and the icon REFUSES to show up.

    The netbeans7-2.desktop file is as follows:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Name=NetBeans IDE 7.2
    Comment=The Smarter Way to Code
    Exec=/bin/sh "/opt/netbeans-7.2/bin/netbeans"
    Icon=/opt/netbeans-7.2/nb/netbeans.png
    Categories=Development;
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=0
    I have tried

    Code:
    sudo update-desktop-database
    with no success.

    Does anyone have ANY ideas?

    Thanks.

    If nothing else goes, you can do it yourself.

    Save that launcher-information in a textfile named netbeans.desktop to your homefolder.

    Then open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and paste this:

    sudo mv ~/netbeans.desktop /usr/share/applications/netbeans.desktop
    This is my signature

    You can also create a Unity launcher by using the alacarte package, I was just wanting to see if there was a fix for this. By all means that .desktop file should work.
