I'm using the mate-panel on Devuan 2.0 ASCII (~= Debian 9.0 Stretch).
I've downloaded this (binary) application which I've placed in
/opt/the_app. I have a link to its binary under
/usr/local/bin/the_app. Now, the app's distribution comes with a
.desktop file and an
.ico file it links to. How do I use this file to see Zotero in my desktop environment's launcher? Or - should I not use it directly at all?
The file's contents:
[Desktop Entry] Name=TheApp Exec=bash -c "$(dirname $(readlink -f %k))/the_app_binary -url %U" Icon=the_app.ico Type=Application Terminal=false Categories=Office; MimeType=text/plain
