Gnone 3.X adding personal launcher

Wanted to add Firefox as a personal launcher here’s a sample of what I did

$ cat /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Version=14.0.1
Name=Mozilla Firefox
Comment=Firefox Web Browser
GenericName[en]=Firefox
Terminal=false
Exec=/usr/bin/firefox
Icon=/data/esentails/firefox/icons/mozicon128.png
Type=Application
X-MultipleArgs=false
Categories=Application;Internet;
MimeType=text/plain;
InitialPreference=5
StartupNotify=true

It should show up in your gnome overview and then you’ll be able to drag it as a favorite.

Gnome 3.x Change Panel

To change color of gnome 3.x panel

$ vi /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css

search for

/* Panel */

#panel {
background-color: black;
font-weight: bold;
height: 1.86em;
}

I changed

background-color: grey;

But I’m sure you could also try a

border-image: url("border.png");

and play with opacity .

save the file reload the gnome3 desktop by hitting

Alt+F2

then enter

r

hit

Enter
