For a little more background, I'm using the classic style menus in MATE. I have a bash alias that I'd like to run through the menu (i.e. Mozo/"Main Menu") - is there a way to do this? Specifically this alias calls to rename a file and launch a program, but nothing I've tried seems to yield anything (i.e. I've tried putting different quotes around the alias, as well as switching from "application" to "application in terminal" options within mozo, the latter is the option that seems to make sense to me). Anyway, the real question is can an alias be used by main menu which uses a simple command (mv) then launches an application? Thanks for reading
(By the way, the alias works just fine through the terminal, but I'd rather use the main menu here, since the primary function of the alias is to launch the program
