||The bug is still relevant.|
If the .desktop file for sparrow-wifi is missing in Kali Linux, you can manually create a desktop entry for it. Here's how you can do it:
Open a text editor (e.g., nano) and create a new file with the .desktop extension. For example:
**sudo nano /usr/share/applications/sparrow-wifi.desktop**
Add the following content to the file, adjusting the values as necessary:
Replace /path/to/sparrow-wifi-icon.png with the actual path to the icon file for sparrow-wifi. If you don't have a specific icon file, you can omit the Icon line, and it will use a default icon.
Save the file and exit the text editor.
Make the .desktop file executable by running the following command:
**sudo chmod +x /usr/share/applications/sparrow-wifi.desktop**
The sparrow-wifi application should now appear in your applications menu. You can search for it by name or browse through the relevant category (Network or Security).
By manually creating the .desktop file, you should be able to launch sparrow-wifi from the applications menu or search.
||sparrow-wifi has a GUI app so it should have a desktop file. I'll add it to my todo list for the menu updates|
