I just got myself a MBPR yesterday after 15 years of only using Linux (so pls. be patient). I have some scripts that I use regularly and I would like to run them from the Launchpad. So in the Applications folder I created a folder SomeScript.app/Contents/MacOS/ and put my script SomeScript in that (like I found googling around) Then I assigned an icon to this folder. It appears to work: if I open the Applications folder in Finder, I see the icon and when I click on it, the script executes. But whatever I do, it does not appear on the Launchpad, also not on the 2nd page, dragging it to the Launchpad icon also does not work, neither does rm. ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db; killall Dock Anyone know why it won't work? do I need more "magic" files in the Contents folder?
