The issue is with the Code::Blocks view in Bamf returning false when asked whether it is 'user_visible' in LauncherApplicationsList::insertBamfApplication(…). Later on, it seems the value changes to true, but the application has already been discarded.

This is due to the splash screen shown at startup. If I uncheck the "show splash screen on start-up" option in Code::Blocks’ settings, after restarting it I get an icon in the launcher (note that it cannot be favourited because there is no associated desktop file, but this is a separate issue).

I’m attaching the output of xprop for the splash screen.
Note how _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_SPLASH is set to _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_SPLASH, whereas it should probably be set to _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_SPLASH.
Also note how _NET_WM_STATE is set to _NET_WM_STATE_SKIP_TASKBAR. This is probably what makes bamf consider the application is not "user visible".

Wow, copy-paste insanity happened in my previous comment… The third sentence from the end should read:

« Note how _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE is set to _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL, whereas it should probably be set to _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_SPLASH. »
