-Linux users may wish to use a package for their distro rather than using the tarball ​directly. If you download ​the tarball, unzip it and run ''​zotero''​ from that directory to start Zotero. ​+Download ​the tarball, extract ​the contents ​and run ''​zotero''​ from that directory to start Zotero. ​
  
-Alternatively,​ on Ubuntu, ​move the directory to a location of your choice, run the bundled ​''​set_launcher_icon''​ script ​(which will update the included ​desktop file with the full path to the bundled Zotero icon), and then double-click ​''​Zotero'' ​(which may display as ''​zotero.desktop'' ​initially)You can also symlink ​''​zotero.desktop''​ to ''​~/​.local/​share/​applications/'' ​to add it to your launcher.+For Ubuntu, the tarball includes a .desktop file that can be used to add Zotero to the launcher. Move the extracted ​directory to a location of your choice ​(e.g., ''/​opt/​zotero''​), run the ''​set_launcher_icon''​ script ​to update the .desktop file for that location, and symlink ​''​zotero.desktop'' ​into ''​~/.local/​share/​applications/​'' ​(e.g., ''​ln -s /​opt/​zotero/​zotero.desktop ~/​.local/​share/​applications/​zotero.desktop''​). Zotero should then appear in your launcher.
  
 +Alternatively,​ Linux users may wish to use a package for their distro rather than using the tarball directly. Note that such packages are built by third parties, and we can only provide support for the official tarball.
