I am new to Linux (I've been studying it for just about few days, and I have just installed Fedora workstation on my desktop.), and I downloaded Firefox Developer Edition for just testing it. I can just do extracting tar.bz file, and opening 'firefox' file in the extracted folder. I want to show it on the panel of GNOME, how can I do it? Does Linux have the folder which has the same concepts as the folder called 'Program Files' in MS Windows? What is process of showing it on the panel?
To create any shortcut you just need to create a .desktop file for the software as shown below:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Icon[en_CA]=gnome-panel-launcher Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new Name[en_CA]=Create Desktop Shortcut Name=Create Desktop Shortcut Icon=gnome-panel-launcher
