what am I missing?


I just installed Netscape 6.2 and everything works fine. The problem is everytime I try to make a shortcut for it on the desktop and launcher, they don't work. I have Ximian and RH 7.2. I can run it from a terminal though.
Ideas?

make the file in /home/username/Desktop named Netscape with these contents, edit the command and path to the correct location for your app.


[Desktop Entry]
Comment[C]=
Exec=netscape
Icon=
MimeType=
Name[C]=Nutscrape
ServiceTypes=
Terminal=false
Type=Application




Once you do that you can edit it from the desktop and add whatever you want, icon, etc..

Thanks, though I left the nutscrape out, got to be PG-13 around here.
