Not sure why the changeIcon.py script didn't work - but it doesn't do anything functional - just makes pretty icons!

RE no GNS3 icon - the script itself didn't actually do that, installing the .deb should do it, although I have noticed that it doesn't always. Easy to fix.

Ubuntu 14.04: Run gns3 from the command line. When GNS3 is opened, right-click on the icon in the launchpad area and say "Lock to Launcher"

Linux Mint 17.1: Click on the menu button, search for gns3, right-click on GNS3 and say "add to panel"

Could it be the way Unity and I think Gnome handle desktop icons and launchers? It seems you can't right click and add them to the desktop any more. You seem to have to create files called app.desktop in a sub folder somewhere before they will appear in the search. I still can't work out how to get them to be a desktop icon.

I will keep having a play around and let you know if I find anything.

Thanks for all your hard work.

The folders that I create on the desktop are filled with .desktop files. They should still work on Ubuntu

The actual folder shortcuts were on there. The launcher and other icons that are are associated with the folders were not.

try running the $HOME/GNS3/WorkBench/Scripts/Administrative/createDesktopShortcuts.sh script (as a normal user)

I have updateIcons.sh but not createDesktopShortcuts.sh.

The folders stayed but the right icons now appear. Still no GNS3 launcher to run it on it's own.

Thanks for the help.
