Add Application to Ibar

Question

Hello All,

 

I am new to Bodhi Linux. I am using Bodhi 4.4.0. I compiled VIM editor in my home directory and created a soft link in /usr/bin/vim. Now how do I add Vim to IBar? Please help.

 

Thanks and regards,

Joy

You should be able to right click on the iBar > Contents , find your application and Add it by clicking the dot to the right and then clicking Add.

 

You can supposedly add an app to the iBar by dragging its icon from the open window to the iBar.

First you have to create a .desktop file a.k.a. launcher for VIM.

Use "Run Everything" to do this:

Type VIM in the dialog. next hit TAB and select " New Application Entry".

 

I trust you are smart enough to fill in the contents where needed.  :)

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Doh! I read soft link as a .desktop file had been created. Did I ever misread that. After you have followed Charles' suggestion, you can even go in and edit the .desktop file to make VIM show up in your preferred submenu. I would suggest https://specifications.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/apa.htmlas a list of Categories and choose the appropriate one. Otherwise, your shortcut is likely to show up in Other.
