FileZilla Pro .desktop file

For anyone who might decide to purchase a license for FileZilla Pro for Linux – Pop!_OS (Ubuntu) in my case – and you want to have an icon to open the application instead of using the command line, try the following:

Extract the files (assuming your bz2 file is in your Downloads folder)

$ cd Downloads
$ tar -xvJf FileZilla- (tab to autocomplete)

Move it to some place nice

$ sudo mv FileZilla3 /opt

Then create the .desktop file

$ vim ~/.local/share/applications/FileZilla.desktop 

Paste the following text

[Desktop Entry]

Terminal=false
Icon=/opt/FileZilla3/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/filezilla_pro.svg
Type=Application
Categories=Network;FileTransfer;

Save your file and your done. Enjoy!
