I got a notification to upgrade when launching RPD.
I went through the process, and hit run; all working.
Closed the RPD. Then looked in the menu for it, and could not find it.
typed rapid-photo-downloader in the terminal, and it launched.
Then I read this: Fedora 30: RPD installed and working, but not sowing up in application menu
downloaded the install.py (which did not download, but appeared as text in the browser.
Copied the text and saved it; then ran it with python3 ~/Downloads/install.py
Still no menu item.
Then checked the path which includes ~/.local/bin
python3 -m pip show rapid-photo-downloader Name: rapid-photo-downloader Version: 0.9.24 Summary: Downloads, renames and backs up photos and videos from cameras, phones, memory cards and other devices Home-page: http://www.damonlynch.net/rapid Author: Damon Lynch Author-email: email@example.com License: GPL 3+ Location: /home/maxg/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages Requires: arrow, colour, tornado, python-dateutil, pyxdg, pyzmq, PyQt5, babel, easygui, gphoto2, PyGObject, pymediainfo, psutil, sortedcontainers, rawkit Required-by:

then took this approach:

Still no menu item…
but command line launch works.
How can I add the menu item for RPD?
