Ubuntu - Launcher icon for Android Studio (Stable at last!)

December 15th 2014

So, there's finally a stable version of Android Studio! Great news, but how about getting a launcher icon for it?

Well, here it is! Simply create the file: /usr/share/applications/AndroidStudio.desktop

Text Snippet:
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Exec=/full-path-to/android-studio/bin/studio.sh
Name=Android Studio
Icon=/full-path-to/android-studio/bin/androidstudio.svg

After you've made the file, run these commands to give it the correct permisisons:

Text Snippet:
sudo chmod 644 AndroidStudio.desktop
sudo chown root:root AndroidStudio.desktop

And that's it!
