View Full Version : [ubuntu] Create menu item for prog in terminal?

May 31st, 2010, 10:20 PM
I have a program which runs in terminal - no graphical front end. I'd like to create a menu item so that I can start it like any other application without first opening a terminal and having to remember/type the executable name.

What would I need to put before the executable name in the 'command' field of the "New item" command in the "Main menu" facility, so that clicking on the menu item would open a terminal, load the executable and run it?

Thanks, Ray

In the launcher dialogue navigate to Type and choose Application in Terminal.
