Getting started: Add icon and desktop file

Setting up the icon and desktop file is a pretty central part
of making an application work, so we should do it for our example.

The fact that the examples are uninstalled makes this a little
more complicated.

To make gnome-shell use the desktop file and icon for this example
while running it uninstalled, do the following:
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/applications
sed -e "s#@bindir@#$PWD#" exampleapp.desktop \
> ~/.local/share/applications/lt-exampleapp.desktop
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps
cp exampleapp.png ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=Example
Icon=exampleapp
StartupNotify=true
Exec=@bindir@/exampleapp
