I have successfully built Lazarus 2.0.12 with fpc 3.2.2 on an Ubuntu 20.04.3
machine running the Cinnamon desktop.
I have noted this problem:
The desktop file is not recognized by Ubuntu so it shows in the main menu.
I have created it here:
If I copy the desktop file to $HOME/Desktop then it appears on the screen and I
can start it.
But I want it on the menu....
The content is this (newsreader wraps long lines so Exec= is wrapped):
Comment=Lazarus IDE 2.0.12
Does Ubuntu with Cinnamon place the files in another location?
