The best place to *find* answers to programming/development questions, imo, however it's the *worst* place to *ask* questions (if your first question/comment doesn't get any up-rating/response, then u can't ask anymore questions--ridiculously unrealistic), but again, a great reference for *finding* answers.

quick way to add a program link to the unity launcher sidebar in ubuntu 12.04

it is totally ridiculous that it is so difficult to add an application to the unity launcher or sidebar.

solutions i found today involve editing .desktop text files or install additional software like gnome-panel, but the simplest way to do it is this:
1. start the program manually
2. go to unity's launcher sidebar
3. there will be an icon for the program you just started (it might or might not have an image file, if not, it will just look like a question mark "?")
4. right click on the icon and choose Lock to launcher
