I defined TERMCMD="xterm'.
1. Simply putting 'vpnclient connect "my profilename"' with run in
terminal checked did not work. Leaving out the ' quotes did not work
I simply put xterm -e 'my command string' and it works.
I think xfterm4 is getting confused with the quotes. If I do this from
a command line it works.
xfterm4 -e "vpnclient connect "Faculty-Staff Off Campus""
At this point I'll stick with xterm -e in my launcher.
