Launch AppImage directly from Application list

Hi Qubes Community,
I tried:

What if my application has not been automatically included in the list of available apps?

As described I made my APP.desktop file and added the following:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon=/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/512x512/email/APP_PICTURE.png
Name=TEXT
GenericName=TEXT
Comment=TEXT
Categories=TEXT
Exec=/home/user/AppImage/APPNAME.AppImage

dom0 update… added my new Application to VM Application list and tried to launch the AppImage.
Unfortunately, without success it does not start the AppImage.

My guess, Exec=/home/user/AppImage/APPNAME.AppImage is not correct. Do I need add something here or do I need to point to another location?

Who has successfully added an AppImage to a VM Application list?
Any hint for me to fix the issue.

Thank you.

Solved. :kissing:
Don’t know the reason but a reboot did magic…
Maybe the AppVM needed a reboot during dom0 qvm-sync-appmenus <TemplateVMName> routine.
