Recently I wrote about how to solve some issues with Mendeley Desktop in Fedora 14 but in that post I didn’t show how to properly install the application adding the necessary menu entries and installing the files in the right directories. The ideal approach would be to create an RPM to handle de installation process, however, this time I just created a short script that downloads Mendeley Desktop, install the files and apply the fixes from my previous post.
The script is available as Gist in Github and I invite you to fork it if you find any problem or have something to improve it.
UPDATE (2011/06/13): The script was modified to work on i386, i686, i586 and x86_64 machines. Not tested for other machines. Please let me know if you have any problem.
