Ubuntu :: How To Create Launcher From Bash Script

Mar 11, 2010

How do I automate the creation of a launcher from a bash script?I can easily create my launcher by drag and drop or right-clicking on the menu panel, but I would like to fully automate this from a bash script.I suppose it is a Gnome question rather than a general Ubuntu question, but all searches typically ends explaining how to create a launcher that runs a bash script.

Ubuntu :: Create Launcher For A Shell Script?

Apr 4, 2010

I decided to try and find a home inventory application. I found one called "Attic Manager" that works in Ubuntu. [URL]

The instructions are to run it from the terminal. That's ok for once and a while, but a pain if used regularly. So I tried to set up a launcher for it. I couldn't seem to get it to work. In the command, I simply put in the path and file name, but can't seem to get it to work.

Ubuntu :: Create A Launcher With Sudo Priveliges?

May 30, 2010

I am wondering how to create a launcher with 2 functions in Ubuntu 10.04. The functions I want are both in terminal, and I want them executed in this order:

# sync
# echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

The echo 3 command requires root privileges to run, and I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I am brand new in ubuntu, and have only been using it for about 2 weeks. The reason behind this is that I want a launcher in the bar at the top of the screen that I can click periodically to dump my ram cache, since I have 4 gb of ram, and do not see the point of using 100 percent of that when just sitting on the desktop.

Ubuntu :: Create A Launcher That's Doing Two Separate Commands

Sep 23, 2010

I'm trying to create a launcher that's doing two separate commands. Here's currently what I have.

Code:

rm ~/Games/Nintendo DS/NO$Zoomer.ini; wine ~/Games/Nintendo DS/NO$Zoomer.exe

Now, the reason I have to delete the .ini file, is for some reason the file gets corrupted every time (it's a well known problem, from what I've read.) and I can't start up the program until it's removed. Now, it works fine in Terminal, but when I run it through my Launcher icon, it does nothing.

Ubuntu :: Create Launcher For Java File As Root

Dec 25, 2010

I have a java.jar (PCGen) that only works correctly if I run it with sudo from the terminal. I have to cd into its directory and run it as

Code:
sudo java -jar pcgen.jar

I would like to use a menu launcher instead of having to use the terminal each time. I tried

Code:
sudo java -jar /path/to/file/pcgen.jar

No luck. This .jar only works properly if ran as root, is there any easy way to do this?

Fedora Installation :: How To Create A Desktop Launcher

Mar 26, 2010

I am having trouble creating a desktop launcher icon for an application that needs to run in terminal mode and is run with "mono". After creating the launcher on the desktop it launches the terminal window and then gives the error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal", and the terminal window is blank. Here are the steps I use to launch the application in a many step process. click on applications/system tools/terminal then in the terminal window I type, cd /var/opensim/Test/bin mono OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe The above steps work just fine and the instance of the application runs just fine, but it is rather tedious to enter in all that everytime I want to run the application.

1 - place a desktop icon on my desktop to launch the application,

2 - Launch this application when I reboot Fedora so it starts automatically whenever I boot.

The way I created the desktop launcher was to right click on the desktop and select create launcher. I selected "application in terminal" and when I entered in the command line, I added "mono" to the command after navigating to the place the application was with the correct path. Here is the actual command line that is in the launcher that throws the error message.

/var/opensim/Test/bin/mono OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe

Fedora :: How To Create Launcher For Application Using DosBox

Jun 13, 2011

how do I create a launcher for an application using DosBox? I tried in Alacarte, but it does not show up. I did this both as root and as user.Disregard. It did create the launchers. It just put them in "Other" even though I told it to create them in "Internet" so they are there, but just not where I want them. That is okay since now I can add them to my favorites and put them in the order I want.

I guess I will like Gnome 3 better as I find tweaks to make it work like I want it to work. Still though, it is not nearly as user friendly as my heavily tweaked Gnome 2 with Compiz.Another question though: How do I get it to select and use a photo I want for the background instead of the stock images? It is annoying as all get-out to have the screen turn to grey rather than stay the way I want it. :

General :: Gnome Panel "Create Launcher" Question - Bug Or Just Poor Design?

May 18, 2010

Gnome 2.30.0 (Ubuntu 10.04) I wish to create a launcher to a particular subdirectory.- right click on Panel and select Add to Panel- choose Custom Application Launcher- Set Type to Location- input desired NameNext to the Location text box is a Browse... button. I would expect to be able to browse to the subdirectory which I wish to access with my launcher. However, the Browse... button brings up a window which is titled "Choose a file..." and which will only "Open" a file, not a subdirectory.Is this a bug I should report or just an example of poor user interface design? If the latter, is the issue with the Create Launcher program (for bringing up a file locater) or with the File Locater program (which should have the option of selecting a location as well as a file?
