    Need gnome launcher help

    I was hoping someone can help. After installing ATI Catalyst drivers, there is no menu access to the ATI Control Center. I have to run a terminal command to get it to pop up.

    DISPLAY=:0 amdcccle

    How can I create a launcher to get this command to run and launch the ati software?

    It doesn't work. I choose command line in the launcher, but I get an error when trying to launch it.

    "There was an error creating the child process in the terminal."

    I then removed the DISPLY portion and it seems to work.
    amdcccle instead of "DISPLAY=:0 amdcccle"

    Is there a way I can run this as root? It needs root to make certain changes.

    Thanks.

    It works. The strange part is, I was playing with gnomenu and those menus pick up the ATI software, but not mintMenu. I will leave that for a different post I suppose. Thanks so much.
