Hi
I?m trying to create a .desktop file which needs to be able to launch from the dock.
So I created the following file and saved it to my desktop entitled youtubed.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Video Download
Comment=Launch Youtube-DL
Exec=/home/osint/Documents/scripts/youtubedl.sh
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;OSINT
Icon=/home/osint/Documents/icons/youtube-dl.png

After saving this file to my desktop, I close this editor and open a terminal, type: cd Desktop
Then in terminal, I typed sudo mv youtubedl.desktop /user/share/applications/
I entered my password
This is where I get en error message about the mv command and something about a directory or something.
Im a completely new at this and don?t know what to do to fix this. I?ve been trying for a couple of weeks, but I?m not having any luck; so I?m hoping someone can help me out. It would really be helpful if the reply can be written out step-by-step so that I can learn.
Thank you in advance.
