Desktop Icon for a Page/Link


I just created a HTML page in www folder in my custom app and i want to link it to my desktop icon. I already try to make a script in and yes it appeared on my desktop icon. My problem is for that HTML page it only appeared on certain user and not all the user. I already try to make changes on Show/Hide desktop icon for everyone, but still problem remains. Im also try to give role permission to specific user that didnt show, but still failed.

Any idea on this?

Desktop icons are shown based on permission. If its a module, it will be shown on basis of the permission of documents in it.

		"module_name": "someapp",
		"color": "#f4a142",
		"icon": "octicon octicon-package",
		"type": "page",
		"link": "dashboard",
		"label": _("Dashboard"),

This routes to /#dashboard and not /dashboard. Is there any way to just route without a ‘#’?
