Custom MythTV Icon For Ubuntu Unity Launcher

To create an icon on the Ubuntu 12.04 Unity Launcher for a MythTV frontend with a certain window size, I created a text file ~/.local/share/MythTV800x450.desktop. I put the text below in the file. In Nautilus I set the file as executable and dragged the file to the Unity Launcher.
