    Installed gtk vnc viewer -- now where is it?

    Lubuntu -- Used Software Center to install gtk vnc viewer. I doesn't look like it was entered into any of the start menus. But I can run it from "Run." How can I create a startup menu entry for this application?

    did you log out and back in? or restart?

    if it is still not in menu, use menu editing program ( like
    LXMenuEditor -- http://lxmed.sourceforge.net/index.html --)

    Create a file named vncviewer.desktop in ~/.local/share/applications

    Add the following contents to this file:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Name=GTK VNC Viewer
    Comment=Add a comment here
    Exec=Add the command to run it here
    Icon=Add the path to an icon here
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Utility;Application;
    The name of the file doesn't really matter actually and you can change any of the variables in this file in a way you want.
    This entry should show up in the menu under Accessoires.
