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.
