Location of program shortcut for Google Chrome

I need to find it and edit it. Is there a way of doing that? I’m using Natty Narwhal(Ubuntu V11)

Which shortcut ? … the one in the Unity launcher ?

And what do you wish to edit about it ?

Yes, the one on the unity launcher and i need to edit it to use a browser add on without interruption.

AFAIK Unity doesn’t store the symlinks… but there’s nothing to stop you creating a custom launcher somewhere, then dragging it to the Unity launcher bar


I’m going to take a guess that it is -

But If I were you I’d copy that to somewhere like -
edit it… then drag that copy to the luancher… then unpin the original.

or at the VERY least, back it up first :wink:


cp /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop


gedit ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

make your changes (to the Exec= line ?) and save… then

nautilus ~/.local/share/applications

and drag the google-chrome.desktop file to the launcher.
