I'm using Gnome 2.32.0 in Ubuntu 10.10 and I need to execute a Python script via Gnome custom application launcher. I added an application launcher to the panel and pointed the relevant Python script, but every time I try to run it, I get an error message along these lines:
There was an error creating the child process for this terminal Failed to execute child process "/home/dananjaya/xkcd_viewer/xkcd_gui.py" (Permission denied)
What is the correct way of adding a Python script to the application launcher? What is wrong in this case? Thank you in advance.
