After a couple of hours of tinkering I have Oracle SQL Developer installed on ElementaryOS (based off Ubuntu) and created a desktop shortcut
Oracle SQL developer.desktop in
Only thing is, when I open up the applications menu from the GUI it doesn't appear.
Code from the .desktop file:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Terminal=false Name=Oracle SQL Developer Icon=/sqldeveloper/icon.png Exec=sqldeveloper
Output from ls -l /usr/share/applicatons/Oracle SQL developer.desktop
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 120 Aug 31 13:48 /usr/share/applications/Oracle SQL Developer.desktop
All other .desktop files are also -rw-r--r--
As a workaround I can open SQL Developer from terminal by running
sqldeveloper but I'd like to use the shortcut I created. Any ideas what to do to get this to appear in the applications menu?
