I had posted in a DSL specific area but didn't get much feedback. Anyways, here is my issue, I have 3 scripts that I need to execute and I need them to be desktop icons. So, I created a lnk and made the command: aterm -T "label" -e '/path/to/myscript.sh'
When I click on the link the window pops open then closes. if I open aterm (or xterm for that matter) and issue the same command it opens another terminal window and runs fine.
I went further and ran the command from Emelfm, and right away a window opens and then closes, and it shows a "end-of-output" message, but no error codes like when I mess with the script. I have already set my working directory in the script, so I have no idea what to do now, been at this for 2 days now with no luck.
Anyways, I have to have a term window open for each app as they simulate financial transaction servers and show heartbeats and acknowledgements, so running in the background is not an option and I don't want them to start at boot.
So, anyone have any idea of how to get these to run from the desktop so I can get some sleep
--Added. I made a simple script that would just ping google, and I have the exact same problem.
