Ubuntu 20.04, SE v25.0.1.0, cannot add to Ubuntu favorites bar
« on: February 25, 2021, 05:07:58 pm »
SE v25.0.1.0 64-bit w\hotfix 2501_2
Ubuntu 20.04.

I noticed that I do not get the option to pin SE to the favorites bar like the applications I am using. When I right-click on the icon, the choice to Add to Favorites is missing.

I am new to Linux so I don't know if this is an issue with SE or Ubuntu.

v25 doesn't support this. v26 will have support for this. Also, the Application Launcher Context menu (Right click on SlickEdit Icon in Favorites) will also have a "New Instance" menu item so more than one instance of SlickEdit started.

Hi Clark,
Thanks. It's not a big deal, just a convenience anyway. So, no worries. Will get it in v26.

I think this will work for Ubuntu 20.04 as well, but on 18.04 I did the following:
(Note, assuming you installed SlickEdit in the default path /opt/slickedit-pro2020)

1. Copy the desktop file for SlickEdit as follows:
$ cp ~/Desktop/SlickEdit Pro-25.0.1.0.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/.

2. On the launch bar at the bottom, click on the "Show Applications" (looks like 3x3 dots icon)

3. In the Search, type "SlickEdit"

4. You should see an icon for SlickEdit in the search, right click on this icon, then select "Add to Favorites" on the context menu.

Give that a try.
