    Add shortcut to Ubuntu Launcher

    Hi.

    I am trying to add a shortcut to PyCharm IDE to Ubuntu Launcher (Ubuntu 13.04), but so far nothing is working.

    I've created a file named "pycharm.desktop" in "/usr/shares/applications/" with this:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Name=PyCharm
    
    Exec=/home/username/pycharm-2.7.2/bin/pycharm.sh
    Terminal=false
    Icon==/home/username/pycharm-2.7.2/bin/pycharm.png
    Type=Application
    Categories=TextEditor;IDE;Development
    X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=NewWindow
    
    [NewWindow Shortcut Group]
    Name=New Window
    Exec=/home/username/pycharm-2.7.2/bin/pycharm.sh
    TargetEnvironment=Unity

    I'm not seeing a PyCharm entry in Ubuntu Launcher with this... What may be wrong?
    I used this process to add a shortcut for Sublime Text 2 and it works :\

    Thanks

    Try to put only this and see if it works:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Name=PyCharm
    Exec=/home/username/pycharm-2.7.2/bin/pycharm.sh
    Terminal=false
    Icon==/home/username/pycharm-2.7.2/bin/pycharm.png
    Type=Application

    Thanks for the tutorial howefield.
    Thee's script worked. I just needed to drag the shortcut from dash to the launcher after creating the .desktop file.

    Thank you all.
