Hope this in the right forum to (considered desktop forum), apologies if it has to be moved.
I'm running a Smeegol distribution (MeeGo on top of OpenSUSE), which prohibits me from using the typical right click to add launcher to program menu method. I've installed a piece of notetaking software (KeepNote), and I'd very much like it to show up in my distro's application menu. It was installed via downloading source and running an included setup.py file. It will run perfectly when I run "keepnote" in terminal.
I was originally trying to write my own .desktop file for it, but found a .desktop while poking around in the source folder. I moved it into /usr/share/applications and it shows up in the program bar but I can't get it to do anything either from the program bar or by doubleclicking it in the file browser. While trying to get it to work, I've also chowned it to root and made sure it's set to run as an executable.
I doubt that the issue is caused by the actual .desktop file because the one that I wrote will also not work, but I'll post the contents just in case. Thanks for any help!
