okay I’ve got 2 fxruby programs and they run from the command line okay
but now I want to have it executed from the KDE desktop.
things I’d tried
copy konsole (terminal) to the desktop and change settings so that a
script would run.
repeat for 2nd program.
PROBLEM they both share 1 .desktop config settings file.
solved this by copying and renaming the .desktop file
now I have myscript1.desktop file and myscript2.desktop file each
pointing to their own directories but they wont work!! From the file
manager I can right mouse click them and see from the pop-up sub menu
Open-with the 2 config files and they work there but this is a poor
these programs would not execute/launch from the desktop icons!!
Found that my moving the .desktop files from
I get the action I want namely user clicks on the icon for ruby script
it gets executed just like a 1st class kde program.
It is by chance that it has a GUI frontend and i get the benefit of
having NO CLI console visible too so this is equivalent to the .rbw
files in windows.
Hope this helps someone down the track.
