i3-dmenu-desktop and desktop applications

vdegenne profile image Valentin Degenne ・1 min read

Here is three locations your desktop launchers (e.g. i3-dmenu-desktop) might look inside to list desktop applications :

  • /usr/share/applications
  • /usr/local/share/applications
  • ~/.local/share/applications

Note that in reality it searches for "applications" folder inside the folders listed under the environment variable $XDG_DATA_DIRS.
