I just found that Albion online can't show up in my Linux Mint 17.3 distro start menu. So I looked up a way to add it and it turned out to be very easy. I thought I would share this here as it may be of use for other users. This method should work with any Linux distribution using Gnome, KDE, XFCE or LXDE as desktop manager.

You will need to have the sudoer rights or be able to create a file as root.


The menu entry is represented by a .desktop file that you have to create and edit, located in /usr/share/applications/ . We will call the file albion-online.desktop . So let's open a terminal and type :

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/albion-online.desktop (you can replace gedit by any plain text editor that you have)


We can now edit the file. I put up the file like this :


[Desktop Entry]






Comment=Albion Online launcher

Name=Albion Online





In order for it to work you just need to change the Exec and Icon paths to match your Albion Online installation.

Then save the file and the game icon should now appear in your start menu.
