Re: <SOLVED>How to shift an application from desktop to 'Menu' 'All App's"

Hi smurphos.......... that looks really promising. I have contacted the vendor and he pointed out the 'iris.sh' file to me, and if I click on it and select 'run', well it all works so very well.

Re: How to shift an application from desktop to 'Menu' 'All App's"

I have the start icon on the desktop. I also have the downloaded zip file in 'recent folders'....maybe I can just delete what I have got and install it in the right place with archive manager ? But I am unsure of the steps... as it was a manual download as mentioned earlier....

Tks
