Alas, even after doing this "the right way" the shortcut disappears from
the panel, via no action of my own... I notice that the menu entry I
created for "Signal Private Messenger" no longer has an icon. Not sure what
may have triggered this. So for me, the proper

I had a look myself and may have figured out the "proper" way of creating a
shortcut to launch Signal. By the way I submitted a pull request for the
documentation at https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/m
anaging-appvm-shortcuts/#tocAnchor-1-1-1 because its language is slightly
inaccurate.

These instructions (after verification) should replace the shortcut kludge
of the signal page you created:

My Signal AppVM uses the fedora-23 template, and I have renamed the
.desktop file that Chrome created on that AppVM's desktop to
signal.desktop. Now what?

1. Open a dom0 terminal, cd to /var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/
2. Copy Signal:/home/user/Desktop/signal.desktop to
dom0:/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/apps.templates/signal.desktop
3. Lightly edit
dom0:/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/apps.templates/signal.desktop to
be as follows:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
X-Qubes-VmName=%VMNAME%
Icon=%VMDIR%/apps.icons/signal.png
Name=%VMNAME%: Signal Private Messenger
GenericName=%VMNAME%: Signal
Comment=Private Instant Messenger
Exec=qvm-run -q --tray -a %VMNAME% -- 'qubes-desktop-run
/home/user/Desktop/Signal.desktop'

4. Copy
Signal:/rw/home/user/.local/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/chrome--Default.png
 to
dom0:/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/apps.templates/apps.icons/signal.png

5. Copy
dom0:/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/apps.templates/apps.icons/signal.png
to
dom0:/var/lib/qubes/vm-templates/fedora-23/apps.templates/apps.tempicons/signal.png

6. At this point you should be all set. Ensure Qubes knows about the new
menu item you created by starting the fedora-23 template VM and then
running in a dom0 terminal: qvm-sync-appmenus fedora-23

7. You should now be able to go back to the GUI and from the Q menu: Q ->
Domain: Signal -> Signal: Add more shortcuts...
In the window that will appear, you should now have "Signal Private
Messenger" on the left list of available apps. I moved this to the
"Selected" list and hit OK, which put the entry in my Q menu.

8. Then I went to Q -> Domain: Signal. I right-clicked on "Signal:Signal
Private Messenger" and selected "Add to panel".

9. Success! I now have a button in my KDE panel with which I can launch
Signal with one click.

Hope these steps get documented in the wiki (I'm not attempting a direct
edit lest I break something) and are helpful to people.

Alex

Can someone who has figured out how to create one-click buttons to launch
arbitrary applications in AppVMs chime in with an example please? I'll then
test it and Andrew can stick it in the wiki for all Qubes users to benefit.

Neither do I. I've always make my custom shortcuts the same general way you do.

Andrew, thanks for adding this to the documentation.

I'm afraid my DIY shortcut kludge does not survive some(potentially boot
time) script and is wiped away from the taskbar, only to be replaced by a
default "Chrome browser" shortcut. I admit I don't quite comprehend what
the actual implementation of
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/managing-appvm-shortcuts/#tocAnchor-1-1-1
should be. A worked example that replaces all but the first step of the "
Creating a Shortcut in KDE" section of https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/signal/
would be very much welcome.

Cheers,

Alex

Not at all - especially if you improve my clumsy way of creating the custom
shortcut (steps 7-12) and use the proper Qubes way that Nicklaus linked to.

This is a really neat idea and guide, thanks for sharing it! It might be
better to work with the way Qubes' handles the shortcuts internally.
That documentation can be found here.
https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/managing-appvm-shortcuts/#tocAnchor-1-1-1

If you dig through the GetAppMenus RPC, you'll see it (generally put)
draws it source list from desktop files in /usr/share/applications. If
you put a Signal .desktop file in there, you should (I think, untested)
be able to simply use the GetAppMenus RPC.
