In the last week I upgrade Skype and installed MATLAB and neither of their launcher icons seem to work. They will flash as if they are trying to load the program but after a few seconds go back to being off. These programs run perfectly well from terminal. Is there a way to fix these? I put them on the launcher by pinning a running application to it (although the original one Skype added also didn't work)
