Title: gslapt shortcut in panel stopped working
Post by: miraceti on August 21, 2007, 04:22:25 am
Hi Guys,  just a simple one, does anyone know where the config file for the shortcuts in the Start -> System -> programs is?   

The gslapt link in the menu has stopped working, and it seems to be the only one that has stopped.  gslapt works fine when started from the command line but it would be nice to get the link working again.   I'm using VL 5.08 and have kept it updated regularly.

Thanks

If you're using SOHO, just use the Menu Editor to fix it. :)

check the .desktop for the gslapt shortcut, the location is in /sbin/xxx/applications (sorry, dun remember the actuall path....maybe you can search around it.... :P)

EDIT:

I had the same problem...
Don't know why though... it seems gksu wasn't automatically lauched.

So I think I fixed it by changing the .desktop file in /usr/share/application
I wrote "gksu gslapt" in the Exec line.

the correct path is as above, /usr/share/application
