Re: Creating a program launcher under gnome 3
I know this is some 6 months later but I have recently researched this same topic and want to place this comment here so that maybe others will find it in searching. The method described above works but the old launcher, it turns out, is still available. Like so many other good things in Fedora, those in control of it's destiny seem to want to hide functionality. You can launch the launcher from the command line with:
gnome-desktop-item-edit --create-new /usr/local/share/applications/
su -c 'gnome-desktop-item-edit --create-new /usr/local/share/applications/'
