Genymotion Dash
At First create a “genymotion.desktop” file in “usr/share/applications/” folder. Then copy and paste the below contents into “genymotion.desktop” file.

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Genymotion Simulator
Comment=Android Simulator fast and reliable
GenericName=Genymotion Simulator
Exec=/usr/local/bin/genymotion
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=/media/BACKUP/genymotion/icons/icon.png
Categories=Application;Network;Internet;
StartupWMClass=Genymotion
StartupNotify=true

In above file, I have created symbolic link to my genymotion in “/usr/local/bin/genymotion”. I have installed genymotion in “/media/BACKUP/genymotion/” thus my command to create symbolic link to genymotion is:

$ sudo ln -n "/media/BACKUP/genymotion/genymotion /usr/local/bin/genymotion"

Now, change the “Icon” to point to the icon.png file which is inside the genymotion folder.

If you have any confusions following this walkthrough. Please let me know in comments.

Thanks,
