Updating dropline Gnome on Slackware 10.1?


Im running dropline gnome on slackware 10.1. THere is an icon on my desktop for dropline gnome updates. When I click that, It goes into my terminal, checks a bunch of stuff, and then tells me slackware is not supported and I have to add "--force" to the dropline-installer. I know I did this inorder to install dropline-gnome from a cd. But how and where do I add this so that my dropline gnome will be updated from the net when I press the icon on my desktop?

Thanks

You can right click the icon and look for the commands it is executing when double click. The last time I use gnome, this seems to be hidden somewhere.

What you can do is create a new launcher. The command to execute is dropline-installer --force and check the open in (new) terminal.

Choose the same icon. And just delete the previous one; after you have successfully tested the new one.
