Creating Jabref launcher for Fedora Core 15

I am not sure why, Fedora Core does not include Jabref in their distro, unlike Ubuntu.

Since this is application is VERY CRUCIAL in my work, so I ease up my days by writing my own desktop shortcut file. So I have option whether to run through terminals or simply desktop.

Here goes. I am not aware if anybody else actually created this, since I cannot file any.


With you favorite editor, write an empty file, let say jabref.desktop .. locate it in your favorite place.


[Desktop Entry]
Name=Jabref
GenericName=Jabref
Exec=java -jar /home/najmi/JabRef-2.7.jar
Icon=jabref
Terminal=false
Type=Application

Change the values accordingly. Prior to that, don't forget to get the JAR file for JabRef!

Now, as you can see we have a value, Icon=Jabref. This actually points to

/usr/share/icons/hicolor/

 Now, we just have to locate them in the following places

/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/

I have created the icons, just simply download them here

jabref.png is a 48x48 icon

jabref.png3 is a 16x16 icon

To copy them, you may need a superuser access.


That's all. You should get your own desktop shortcut for JabRef now!
