I was trying to add the Postman app to my Gnome favourite bar, but right clicking it doesn’t give me the option to add it as a favourite.
Apparently if your application is not seen as an Activity then it can’t be added. Usually I’d just create a
.desktop file and use that with a launcher. But Gnome doesn’t really work like that.
I found the answer was to create my
.desktop file and then copy/move it to
/usr/share/applications or if it is a user specific application
$ gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new $ sudo mv ~/Desktop/Postman.desktop /usr/share/applications
Then I can use the “Activities” to search for the app and can now add it as a favourite.
