    Adding executable to favorites bar

    I'm running Fedora 30 with gnome. We have an application, hdhomerun_config_gui that I would like to add to the favorites menu.

    Activities, Search, hdhomerun_config_gui, shows nothing.
    Activities, Applications, All shows nothing.
    The executable is located in /usr/local/bin.
    Code:
    [me@localhost /]$ ls -l /usr/local/bin/hdhomerun_config_gui 
    
    -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 106120 Aug  7 20:58 /usr/local/bin/hdhomerun_config_gui

    I can open a terminal, type hdhomerun_config_gui, and it runs. which hdhomerun_config_gui returns the one in /usr/local/bin. /usr/local/bin is on my path.

    When the application is running, right clicking on it on the menu bar has no add to favorites button.

    So how does one add an application so that it shows up in applications and may be added to favorites?

    Thank you for your help and patience.

    I'd install alacarte and add it there first. Once there, it should appear in with your other applications and can be added to favorites.

    Thanks alacarte installs "main menu" which worked great.
    sudo dnf install alacarte
