You can use the Ubuntu Unity Plugin options in CompizConfig Settings
Manager to alter how the Launcher hides/reveals.  You will probably have to
install CompizConfig Settings Manager.  Its not installed by default as far
as I know, and I think that is because it is dangerous to change some of
the other features with Unity running.

There is also a GUI being developed for creating .desktop files as used in
the Launcher, etc,  For now, there is some stuff around, particularly on
AskUbuntu, which describes how they are put together.
