Patch worked for me!
Is there some setting or permission that I need to flip to enable desktop launchers?

If this is failing and throwing an error, is there a log somewhere that explains what is happening?

Thanks in advance,

Now, why did the error dialog talk about MAD-this and MAD-that instead of "extracodecs?"

Thank you for the reply,
