file Installing Modelio in the Applications menu bar (Ubuntu)

Hi, I would like to contribute a procedure to install modelio in the applications menu bar in Ubuntu or other GNOME-based linux distros:

1. Download and unpack modelio

2. Create a folder named /opt/modelio and move all the unpacked files there, so that modelio.sh resides in /opt/modelio/modelio.sh

3. Create this file with gedit and name it "modelio.desktop":
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Modelio
Comment=Modelio
Icon=/opt/modelio/modelio.xpm
Exec=/opt/modelio/modelio.sh
Terminal=false
Categories=Development;IDE;Java;

4. Make the file executable:
chmod +x modelio.desktop

5. Under your $HOME, create a directory named ".local/share/applications". Move "modelio.desktop" in there. That will make modelio available under the "Applications -> Development" menu of your currently logged user.
