I followed your suggestion about the ./applications folder. I got GLE to load, but I could not figure out how to make the quick lists. I then tried Ubuntu Tweak which also had not been working. U-Tweaks was more intuitive in making the quick lists. I still did not get the quick list to show up, until I restarted my computer then it was there. Maybe that was all I had to do with QLE to make it work.

I guess some "how to use" Quick List Editor instructions would be helpful to some of us, especially me.

I do thank you for looking into my problem and your solution has helped me with several other applications that were not working and now do work.
