    Unhappy Appimage integration with the desktop

    I run a Cinnamon desktop (on Fedora 25), and I did a stupid thing :

    Upon being asked to integrate an appimage (Slic3r Prusa Edition) with the desktop, I denied it AND (that was the stupid thing) clicked on the checkbox saying "Do not show this message again".

    I thought the checkbox is for this one application... but I was wrong. Now, I cannot integrate any appimages with the desktop because the dialog box doesn't show anymore.

    Can somebody help me revert to the initial (default) condition: a request for desktop integration shows up when I want to install an appimage?

    I tried a workaround to this problem by manually making .desktop entries. It doesn't work well. I spend several hours combing my desktop, and trying to find what was changed and correct it. Several more hours spend on the 'net, trying to find an answer to my problem, including the Appimage's own website (https://appimage.org/)

    I really appreciate any help I could get!

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Re: Appimage integration with the desktop

    I guess I am replying myself.

    The puzzle has been solved: AppImages v.1 had the pop-up dialog asking to integrate with the desktop, however, this feature has been removed in version 2. (It seems many people found it annoying.) Instead, the AppImage creators implemented some sort of appimage management, appimaged, that automatically integrates the .AppImage package with the desktop, and removes the icon if the user deletes the respective .AppImage.
