Gnome's vanishing launchers
I create launchers on the Gnome desktop and they dont show up at all, at first I thought it was just my ssh and sftp ones I was trying to make termainal commands, but now my eclipse one just doesnt do anything after i hit ok on the launcher creator. Anyone know what mistake I am making here?

Have you right-clicked on the icon and checked out the launcher's properties? Sometimes it's because the path isn't correct, if so, you might need to fill in the full path. /usr/bin/whatever (Especially if you're working remotely, because your path may change slightly from what you might use if you were logged in as a local user.)

well im on the machine, and I used the browse to make the launcher and it doesnt even seem to create it is the problem. It disappears right when it should be creating it for some reason

is your desktop setup to show icons? (gconf)
