bin (exe) file works in folder, but not on desktop???? Subject description: MU, Pizzagood etc sounds like a script is needed?
From time to time I install an App from Mandriva or Debian using the undeb / unrpm dotpup and the App works if I click on it in say /usr/bin/filename or /usr/games/filename ,but if I drag the exe to the desktop it no longer works. It's like it needs to be close to another file in that folder to start?
I've tried writing a script for this, but will no luck.
Have you came across this problem yourself and what did you do to make it work for you.
Maybe you wrote a small script to get it going.
I also made a new applications menu for it and put it in /usr/share/applications did ./fixmenus in /usr/sbin and it still doesn't work. (app is in menu)
Also did ./filename in terminal opens App but gives no errors?
So very interested to fine out what causes this as it has happened a couple of times before? _________________ Legacy OS 2017 has been released.
