1.. I do not understand why I can not place myself in
the directory containging exe file varicad
and on the command line just type the name
(example, if I want to open kwrite, I just type this in konsole (because it will be in the $PATH I need not worry about being in
the directory where kwrite exe is)
I understand why I need to use the full path for running exe file varicad, and it works both for root and normal user, when I am outside
2.. I don't understand yet how to get icon/applet on desktop or menu linked to varicad.desktop (if that is what is needed). After making the the change in varicad.desktop. I have found out that I don't understand
how to "link" or activate those *.desktop items . I made a quick try: Create > New Link to Appplication and fell flat on my face. This is a secondary problem which I never had time to solve in pclos2009 as I just used konsole start. (I have seen you have given intructions in that direction but lost where) gseaman
You are welcome to chip in but I don't quite understand what you are trying to say, see my ecxample above with kwrite, dolphin etc nothing special you just type the name of the exe file and
if this happens to be in the $PATH you can do it loosely spoken from anywhere konsole is open presently.
Errrhhh where is the $PATH
EDIT: I have to modify above, actually I can not start kwrite with root priviliges it only works when I am normal user.
[root@localhost /]# kwrite
No protocol specified
kwrite: cannot connect to X server :0
I am going to run up pclos2009 now and do some checking, this getting beyond me.
