create desktop shortcut on fedora and rhel using Qt Installer Framework.



  • I have created a desktop shortcut in ubuntu and works fine using this . Now I am trying to create desktop shortcut on rhel and fedora using Qt Installer Framework using these lines.

    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Name=App_name
    Exec=/path/to/App_name
    Icon=/path/to/App_name/App_name.ico
    Terminal=false
    

    The shortcut is successfully created on desktop in rhel and fedora but when trying to run the app_name.desktop from terminal it gives

    app_name.desktop: line 1: [Desktop Entry]: command not found 
    

    I cant figure it why . is these any other method to create desktop shortcut ?
    I have just added following lines in my installscript.qs

    component.addOperation("CreateDesktopEntry", "@HomeDir@/Desktop/App_name.desktop", "Type=Application\nName=App_name\nExec=@TargetDir@/App_name\nIcon=@TargetDir@/App_name.ico\nTerminal=False")
