    Ubuntu 13.04: Edit Unity Launcher item

    Since upgrading to 13.04 my Launcher for Chromium, for instance, still has options such as "Launch with Bumblebee" (for Nvidia laptops) and "Launch Incognito" but they no longer work. Ie clicking on these selections does nothing at all.

    How can I edit the Launcher so that the selections work again? I have looked at /usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop but that doesn't seem to be the correct file to edit as, for example, the Bumblebee/optirun selection doesn't even appear there but "Launch with Bumblebee" still appears when the icon is right clicked.

    One thing you might try is remove the launcher and then add again.

    I fixed it by editing ~/.local/share/applications/chromium.browser.desktop. I was also informed that Ubuntu Tweak has the ability to edit Quicklists (which is what the launcher right click menus are called).

    Thanks to 25tom and stinkeye.
