RH9/Question about prompts in X.


Hello,

I have been making scripts, changing them with chmod to executable and then placing them on the desktop in x for easy access to programs. My one question is, every time I start one up, x prompts me for run or display. "program whatever" is an executable text file. Do you want to run it, or display its contents?"

How do I make so that it always runs and stops prompting me for the choice?

thanks
Mike "the putz"

If you are using KDE:

Right-click > create new > Link To Application

and fill in the details and the location of you script file (store it somewhere in you home dir) then it should load straight away. If your keen, open up the Home.desktop or Trash.Desktop file in a notepad program to see how it all works, interesting.

You can also place a link in the K-Menu and have a shortcut key so you dont even have to use the anoying mouse.
