The solution to the original question is as follows, using Fedora 11/Gnome;
(1) right click on desktop, select 'create launcher'
(2) set type 'Application in Terminal'
(3) set command to something like /home/terry/RPCemu/runrpcemu
write the shell script (runrpcemu) as follows;
# Runs RPCemu
# installed in /home/terry/RPCemu
and save it in your RPCemu dir (where rpcemu executable is)
Note: Don't use './rpcemu &' in the script, the terminal window only lasts
for a microsecond and RPCemu isn't run!
You can then edit your desktop file to point to your Acorn/RPCemu icon,
and Bob's your Uncle.
Open your Desktop dir wherever your desktop stuff is kept and drag the
RPCemu launcher file to your editor and add
'Icon=/home/terry/RPCemu/src/rpcemu.ico' or whatever suits you.
It all works here very nicely, your system may be slightly different. If
anyone needs any more details please ask.
