Icon does a disapearing act.
« on: November 17, 2013, 11:29:28 am »
I downloaded Office. It shows in the left side icons list, but when I reboot its not there. How do I get it to stay there ?

If you mean in the Unity launcher bar in Ubuntu...

Start the program and it's icon should appear in the launcher bar .. Right-click that icon, and select "keep in launcher" or "Pin to launcher" or whatever, you get the picture ;)

OK, try clicking the top icon on the launcher .. searching for your app .. then dragging it's icon onto the launcher.

if that doesn't work...

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls ~/.local/share/applications
