how to make a desktop launcher work in the dock?
I am having this problem with a desktop launcher I created for OmegaT (a translating tool I use all the time for my work): When I click on my launcher icon in a folder (launchOmegaT.desktop), it opens the program just fine with all the options properly loaded. But when I lock the icon to the dock, close the program and then try to open it by clicking on that launcher on the dock, nothing happens.
I had this problem before, but I just looked thru my notes and see I didn't bother to write down what my solution was.
I'm using Pangolin.
