Thread: App start help

  1. #1

    Default App start help

    i have an application called QNext. its an instant messenger among other things. to run it i have to go to the folder its in and type ./qnextclient into a terminal. i have to keep the terminal open for it to run. as its running the terminal still says things to do with the client. Is it possible to run this without a terminal? If yes how would i go about making a desktop icon link to run it easily?

    Hi
    Just right-click on your desktop, select create launcher, add the info
    and it's done.

    Hi
    I run Gnome, if it's KDE that sounds about right. You should also be
    able to customize the icon you wish to use as well.
