Adding items to user's favorites
« on: October 14, 2014, 04:41:18 PM »
Been hunting for a clean way to script the maintenance of the launcher's "Favorites" panel...

Ideally I could add, remove, or modify it's contents via the commandline.

So far the only things I've found involve .desktop files.  Looking for a clean way to do this vi gsettings or whatever the best tool might be.

They are currently saved as directories under .gconf/desktop/unity/launcher/favorites.  each directory has it's own %gconf.xml file containing settings for the directory (if it's a container) or the link (contains elements fro mkthe .desktop filespec.

Thanks!
