Make unity find your application

Maybe I am the only one wondering why unity doesn’t find all my applications when pressing the Super-key and starting to type. But maybe I’m not so let me tell you how you can add an application. You just have to create a desktop file and place it in ~/.local/share/applications/. That’s really the only thing you have to do. Btw, if you drag the desktop file to your unity launcher, it will stay there.
