Launcher question

Postby phil on Mon Aug 03, 2009 9:45 am

While exploring the new Gloria XFCE I have found something that is not a bug but makes it difficult to set up a shortcut. For instance, suppose I want to set up Firefox-3.5 and use the old Firefox icon. In previous versions it was possible to pick one from a list and if not satisfied with those to enter a path/file to an icon. That option is missing in Gloria. A possible solution to this would be to put all icons into the list that the launcher provides which is the solution I will try to implement.

If you select image file it should let you choose the file you want.

Try changing the icon for Firefox-3.5 to the icon for Firefox-3.0. It is not in the icon choices.

In Felicia I had another choice "other" and I could use any icon I wanted from the file system.

Maybe I am missing something.
