Cannot launch konsole from Mate's panel or desktop


I have Linux Mint 14 installed, and am using the Mate desktop.

I can launch konsole from the Menu, but when I try to launch it from an icon on the desktop or panel I get an error:
Code:
There was an error launching the application.
Details:  Failed to change to directory '$HOME' (No such file or directory)
What's happening here?

Thanks
Jim

One of the reasons I switched from Gnome to KDE was the hash they made of menus, launchers, etc. Try:

Code:
locate konsole.desktop
Should have a line like:
Code:
Exec=/usr/bin/konsole
See if it is doing something wrong. Wrong might be something like:

Code:
Exec=cd '$HOME';/usr/bin/konsole
