Konsole commands vs Gui menu


I want Photoshop 6 to runon Linux and I've managed it using wine. I'm running Mandrake 10 and from the konsole I just have to type:

#wine path/to/photoshop/executable

and it works.

I want it in the start menu so I went into menu editor, made a new entry for photoshop and in the command box typed the same as I type in the konsole. It crashes - either no response at all, or the taskbar disappears and nothing happens, or the generic 'this app crashed' window appears. I've double, triple, qudruple checked that the command line is identical to what I type into the konsole.

Whats up with that?

you should just make a small bash script and have the shortcut execute that

wine /path/to/photoshop/executable&

the & will detatch the program from the konsole, but if you still get errors, you may want to remove it and tell the shortcut to execute in konsole

save the above two lines as something like and do chmod 755; execute it and it should work
