I am using docky on Ubuntu. I want to have a launcher for intellij in my docky bar, but I have an issue.

No matter which method for adding the launcher to the dock I use, the intellij icon specified in my .desktop won't display. Instead I get the lame spring board launcher icon. Once I launch intellij it creates another icon on docky. So now I have intellij's correct icon and the spring board launcher icon. Once I close intellij we are back to just the spring board again.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

I should also note that "idea" launches a shell script if that matters
