Description amgarciac 2011-08-23 06:39:40 UTC
I've developed an app by MonoDevelop (for LINUX), having created on its project a ".desktop" file, whose properties had been modified for that file could be included on application ".desktop" directory, but after the installation of the app (by a tarball), these file isn't on the directory where it should be kept (/usr/share/applications).

There isn't any launcher to start that, being desktop app launcher (.desktop) added to the tarball, where the app was packaged and which I use to install the app by the commands (./configure - make - make install).
