    multiple terminal short cuts

    I monitor many servers
    i would like to have multiple terminal short cuts on my desktop
    that use different icons and different login scripts.
    some specs;
    ubuntu 12.04 desktop
    unity desktop


    i tried to do this,
    and the first short cut worked,
    them i created a second one and the first one became a clone of the second
    tried to change the first one back and the second became a clone of the first one
    the short cuts become the same no matter how many i created.

    any help would be great.
    Thanks in advance,

    confusedstingray,

    same issues resolved through a tricky way:

    Created some launchers through alacarte, say
    Code:
    gnome-terminal  -e 'bash -c "ssh someone@somewhere"'
    then, logged to Gnome Classic, just dragged the created launchers from gnome's main menu to the desktop.

    Now, back to unity, I get working desktop shortcuts.

    Hope it helps!

    Im still in Lucid, using gnome2 where there is the nifty application launcher. I put all those sessions up in the panel and it keeps things real neat, and its all 1 click. In Unity, theres no panel! but I think you can still use:
    Code:
    gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
    stuff like ssh, I let it ask me for a password. so i give it a command like:
    Code:
    ssh -X -p 793 user@123.123.123.123
    On the other hand, Ive also made little scripts with things like bash, and Expect, that spawn terminal windows and commands. It wouldn't be too much more difficult to customize their icons.

    Save a file and make it executable:
    something like:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    ssh -X -p 793 user@123.123.123.123
    you could do tsclient, rdesktop or anything else just as easily.
