Arrow Launcher not working


Whats up all?
I recently downloaded a tarball of GQView, great program. My problem is I can't get it to work from a desktop launcher. I can make it work within the terminal by entering the directory for this program and typing in 'gqview'. I have already tried /gqview and /.gqview... I am attaching a listing of all the files in the directory.

[shane@localhost gqview-1.2.2]$ ls
ABOUT-NLS config.guess COPYING install-sh NEWS
acconfig.h config.h.in gqview.1 intl po
aclocal.m4 config.log gqview.desktop m4 README
AUTHORS config.rpath gqview.png Makefile.am src
ChangeLog config.sub gqview.spec Makefile.in stamp-h.in
confdefs.h configure gqview.spec.in missing TODO
config.cache configure.in INSTALL mkinstalldirs


Again, Thank You All Very Much!

For the launcher, use the full path to gqview. In other words, got to a command prompt, type which gqview and use the output as the command for the launcher to use.
