I'm trying to create a menu launcher for the old Hexen game in my Linux Mint 13. In order to do this, I need to run DOSbox with some parameters. I've made the launcher directly on the desktop and it works fine, but adding it to the main menu seems to break the DOSbox parameters. It runs without they. This is the content of the launcher file:
Code: Select all
Name=Hexen - Beyond Heretic
Comment=Id Software, 1995
Exec=dosbox -c 'cd Hexen' -c 'hexen.EXE' -scaler normal3x
If I run it from ~/Escritorio/Hexen.desktop and it works fine, but from ~/.local/share/applications/Hexen.desktop , the default path for menu launchers, runs dosbox without the specified parameters.
Is this a bug? I've made some mistake?
Thanks for your replies!
