How to add CLion icon to desktop in Ubuntu
I am using Ubuntu and CLion 2016.1.
I installed it by downloading tar.gz archive.
Now I have such CLion-2016.1/bin folder. For launching Clion I run ./clion.sh.
How can I add CLion icon to desctop?
You can add a desktop entry to your system directly in CLion :
Tools > Create Desktop entry...
Download the file clion.desktop, put it in ~/.local/share/applications and mark it executable. You may need to adapt the Icon and Exec path to point to CLion-2016.1/bin/clion.svg and resp. CLion-2016.1/bin/clion.sh.
This will allow the launcher etc. to find clion, you can also copy the file to ~/Desktop to have it on your desktop.
