I am new to xfce and installed xfce-4.8 from the sources.
Now I wanted to put an icon on the desktop which when clicked at
should start firefox.
The location of firefox is /opt/firefox/bin/ and is already in my PATH.
I am able to start firefox in a terminal by just typing firefox.
I tried to do that with "Create Launcher".
I filled in firefox for "Name" as well as for "Command" and clicked
On the desktop a gray icon titled firefox.desktop appeared.
After clicking at that gray icon a terminal with a message widget
"Failed to execute child process "/home/klaus/Desktop/firefox.desktop".
chmod 755 /home/klaus/Desktop/firefox.desktop
and clicking again at that gray icon, nothing happened.
firefox.desktop has this content ..
Even more strange, when I try to change the properties of
that desktop icon I am told "Kind: text/plain type" and
"Open With: Terminal".
So what do I wrong. Any help appreciated.
