Arronax, A Nautilus Plugin to Create and Modify Application Launchers

Arronax is a plugin for Nautilus that lets you create and modify application launchers (*.desktop files).

Creating a new application launcher or .desktop file is not as easy as it used to be as Gnome 3 removed the 'create launcher' entry in Nautilus right click menus. With, Arronax, a similar "Create starter" menu item is added to the desktop's context menu and to the file context menu in Nautilus.

Download Arronax by running commands below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install arronax

Alternative method for creating Application Launchers

If you have installed Gnome Shell in Ubuntu 12.04, then just run the command below to get good old gnome 2 like launcher creator dialog box.

gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/.local/share/applications/ --create-new

If you use Unity interface only, then you need to install gnome-panel package from software center as the above command will only work if gnome-panel package is installed (it will pull lots of dependencies in Unity).
