Mendeley Desktop


I am trying to have Mendeley Desktop become a program in the programs list for start up. But as is I have to use the download and a command in the terminal to open it. Is there a fix?

Using Mint 17, 64 bit.

Why not just make a desktop shortcut to it. What DE are you using? KDE? Gnome? something else?

Using MATE, on Mint 17. It so far needs a terminal open and a command line to open, but on another computer it was in the educational software list and clicked to start up, nicely.

You didn't really answer my question in post #2. What DE are you using? I have no idea which DE Mint 17 uses. What is the problem with a desktop shortcut? You can configure the shortcut with any command you wish.

Ok, and Mate is a fork of Gnome. So I guess Mate has desktop shortcuts. What is the problem with using one of them?

When downloading Mendeley desktop, I had to unpackage a file, to be honest I need to know how to do that properly. Open, or extract, and to which place? It is a Tar.bz2 file.

I use my file manager to extract to my home folder, then cd into the file then:

./configure

make

make install
