Hello, I'm just install Wing Personal7 (snap) on Ubuntu. I don't see a launcher on the search Activities panel. Where is it ? Thanks.

I've find ! Launcher is in : snap/wing-personal7/12/resources/linux/desktop/wing-personal7.desktop Open a Terminal and

 cp snap/wing-personal7/12/resources/linux/desktop/wing-personal7.desktop /home/user/.local/share/applications


 chmod +x /home/user/.local/share/applications/wing-personal7.desktop

then copy the icon file

cp snap/wing-personal7/12/resources/wing.ico /home/user/.local/share/icons

You must edit it and change "Exec=wing-personal7.2 %F" to "Exec=wing-personal7 %F" "Icon=wing-personal7" to "*Icon=/home/user/.local/share/icons/wing.ico" Bye

Thanks for posting this! Because of how snaps work the executable ends up being called wing-personal7 and not wing-personal7.2, which is a bit confusing. I'll see if we can do anything to get that file installed as above, although we've run into a few things along these lines where snaps are not integrated into the host system that well. There are also issues with the file dialogs seen on some systems. If you see that, as far as I know the only solution for that is still, as of now, to use the non-snap version instead.
