XFCE external launcher crashes (SOLVED)

#1

Post by jj1j1 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:01 pm

I'm wondering if anyone has ran into a problem I am having concerning the Quick Launcher item in the add item tab of xfce panel preferences. It's not the single program launcher. The launcher i'm refering to comes with 4 items; lock, parameters, applications, and help, and all work, (Edit;Actually the help icon doesn't work), but when I try to add a new one, and then try to use it, the launcher crashes, and disappears from the panel. If I double click a newly added item in the launcher, and select the 3 dots i get a "select icon" window, but can't select a program. I don't see another way to add a program to this launcher.

Can't duplicate the problem here. If I right-click on it and explore its properties I'm able to add items and they work.

I see what I was doing now. I was thinking that selecting an icon was selecting the actual program. How are you specifying a program; in the space after the icon?
edit; I got it working. I wasn't giving it a command. That's why it was crashing.
