How to make a line command an icon in a menu.

Ubuntu @ July 21, 2008   Views:0

Hello everybody,

I have a program I can start using the line command:
/home/anton/Freecad8/visual freecad8.im
How do I turn this into an icon in a drop down like "Applications" and then "Accesories" ?

Thanks in advanced.

--------------Solutions-------------

To add items to the application menu, right click Applications and go to "Edit Menus". Then, go into the folder you'd like to add it to and click the "+ New Item". A standard launcher window should come up. Fill in the info with the command as "/home/anton/Freecad8/visual\ freecad8.im"

Right click on the top panel's Menu (ubuntu icon) and select Edit. Click on Accessories (or wherever) and select New Item. Type in a name and the command. If it is a known program, the app's icon will probably automatically appear. If you want to choose your own, click on the icon and select the location/icon.

Right click on the ubuntu logo that opens the menus, and select "Edit menus" When the window opens you will see a button marked "New item" There you just have to put in your command, give it a name and choose an icon.

Looks like you got a good answer from some talented people .

There you go

One answer, coming up!
