Is creating a shortcut possible?


I would like to put a shortcut on the desktop that starts a script I've already created. This is for those at my office uncomfortable with kicking off the script via command line.

Yeah, depending on what GUI you are using, the process differs. For most, you can simply right click, and choose to create a link. The command would be:

Code:
sh /path/to/script

I can login as root. There is only one other user. I don't know what olwm or CDE stand for.

Can you send a "ps -ef" output to give a clue about what is running on this box ?

I can't, as I access the server through KVM software, I can't cut and paste. I could print screen and email it to you.

*EDIT I'll try to send it to a floppy, then to you.
I just had a thought, a floppy formatted on windows won't be recognized will it?

Could be using 'twm'

if you have a really basic menu on the desktop
and no other 'furniture' it could well be.

he means,
open the 'unix command tool'
Code:
type ps -ef
and try and post it here.

while you are at it, try (literally, using the 'type' command)

Code:
type olwm
type twm
and see what we get.

most likely you may need another Window Manager.
I use Window maker on solaris.

it's a lovely environment, but no short-cuts as such
but an easy configurable menu.
