I've given up trying to get kismet_qt to work mad.gif and decided to write a Bash script which starts kismet_server then starts kismet_qt.

It works but I'd like to be able to start it using an icon on the desktop. However if I try to set one up I keep getting the message 'That program cannot be found' or something very similar even if I use the full path to the script.

So - how is it be done?

.desktop files can only run things which are in /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/

The icon for kismet_qt runs a file in /home/root/usr/bin. How does it do that?

If I move my script to /opt/QtPalmtop/bin I can't set up an icon for that either using 'Tab Setting' on the 'Settings' tab.

No idea. I didn't think this worked. I may be wrong.

I'd just make my own .desktop file by hand in ~/Applications/* (I think that's the correct path...)
