How to create a menu item in linux

MakeMKV doesnt create a menu item (yet) for its self when you install it. This is a simple way to manually make one. This will work for Gnome/KDE/Xfce.

I like nano, but of course use the editor of your choice.

$cd /usr/share/applications
$sudo nano MakeMKV.desktop


put this text into MakeMKV.desktop:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=MakeMKV
Comment=MakeMKV 1.5.x
Type=Application
Exec=/usr/bin/makemkv
Icon=[image_path]
Terminal=false
Categories=AudioVideo


You can find an icon for makemkv in the source folder:
~/source/makemkv_v1.5.x_beta_oss/makemkvgui/src
You can put the icon in /usr/share/pixmaps or /usr/share/icons or wherever you want.
