    "Allow Launching" of desktop icons through CLI

    Hi,

    I'm pushing out a couple of desktop icons to ubuntu machines through ansible

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
    
    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Terminal=false
    Icon[en_GB]=gnome-panel-launcher
    Name[en_GB]=officecam
    Exec=**payload**
    Name=officecam
    Icon=/usr/share/vlc/lua/http/favicon.ico
    After a do-release-upgrade ( to 19.04, nautilus 3.32) I'm finding I have to manually right click and "Allow Launching" and was hoping this was a change I could scripts to save the manual interaction?

    What setting is this changing?

    There is no setting, this is the way nautilus works now..
    You could set another file-manager to run the Desktop, most compatible is nemo.
    While in a unity session this switch is automatically done it would require a little work to do so in a gnome session.
