I am fairly new to Ubuntu and I am having a problem creating a desktop launcher shortcut.
I have been able to create the shortcut and get the icon and executable path etc. but when I try to launch it the terminal window will pop up very fast then immediately close.
I have verified that there are execute permissions on the desktop launcher file and the executable I am trying to launch with the
chmod +x ‘filename’ command.
I can execute it within a terminal with no issue, but not via the desktop
this is a python file that has been compiled with ‘pyinstaller’.
I’m wondering if there is just a switch i am missing or something.
My desktop launcher file is:
Exec=gnome-terminal -e “/home/MYUSERNAME/Downloads/ooeyguiv2/dist/ooeygui/oglaunch.sh”
