    Default Failed to execute child process "export" (No such file or directory)

    I am getting an 'export' error from a desktop file saved in /usr/share/applications/saga-gis.desktop

    Here are its contents:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=SAGA GIS
    GenericName=A System for an Automated Geographical Analysis
    Comment=View and manipulate geographical information
    Type=Application
    Exec=export SAGA_MLB=/usr/lib64/saga;saga_gui
    Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/saga_icon_32.xpm
    Categories=Science;Education;Geography;

    http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/754...0120423121.png (365 kB) is a screenshot of the error.

    Other users who installed this package "saga-gis" from the GEO repository report no errors...

    My OS,
    openSUSE 12.1 (gnome) x64
    Kernel 3.1.10-1.9 desktop

    Please see my bug report for more information: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=758423#c10

    I uninstalled saga-gis, then re-installed, also did a --force with zypper and this is what I keep getting.

    The SAGA desktop launcher is in the menus, and I can click it, but gives thefollowing error:http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/754...0120423121.png (365 kB)

    I can open a terminal and execute 'saga_gui' and that launches SAGA GIS with the modules all loaded. (This is without me running export SAGA_MLB....)

    If I execute 'saga_cmd' and I am given the error:"error: invalid module libraries path [/usr/lib/saga]"

    I read that others are successfully installing it via the GEO repo from the saga forum thread so not sure what my issue is.

    I can run 'export SAGA_MLB=/usr/lib64/saga' without any errors.

    This is pretty much a fresh install of openSUSE 12.1 (gnome)...

    The exec line is bad. It would be correct for a script, but this is not a
    script.

    Hmm... I've heard other users[1] who have downloaded the package and the package maintainer[2] have tested it and got it to launch on their systems.
