LyX icon

Although I do not often use it, I like to have the LyX Document processor available. It can be easily installed from SBo and works very well. A little inconvenience is the absence of a menu entry. Therefore, I just created a file ~/.local/share/applications/lyx.desktop with the following contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=LyX
Comment=LyX Document Processor
Exec=lyx
#Icon=/usr/share/lyx/images/lyx.png
#Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/lyx.png
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/lyx.png
Categories=Office; Terminal=false

I have been doing this for years, but I usually forget to save the .desktop file when I upgrade Slackware and have to make it again. So, there it is…

UPDATE (09 May 2015): the icon path changed with the recent version of LyX.

UPDATE (12 Oct 2015): the icon path changed again with the recent version of LyX, so I commented out the old paths.
