Thanks ongoto. I tried creating a launcher, but the terminal only flashes for a moment and then disappears.
I remember creating some live cd's back in my pclos kde days and there was an icon in the menu and it worked fine.
Are there any other programs for this purpose?
Oh yes, I'm sorry in my haste I put my original post in the wrong section....announcements. Should have been entered elsewhere. Wish you could move it.
