I am trying to create a 'shortcut' that I can pin to my launcher in Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS that will lauch an RDesktop session.
It works fine from the command line thus:
rdesktop -u UserName -d Domain -g 1024x720 -a 16 ServerName
I found something close on this forum:
but it does not quite work.
I made the desktop file that contains this (made it executable etc as per the link above):
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=RDP-ServerName Comment=Open an RDP session to ServerName Exec=rdesktop -u UserName -d Domain -g 1024x720 -a 16 ServerName Terminal=true Type=Application Categories=Utility;Application;
I figured if I could get it to work from the desktop, then I could somehow pin it to the launcher afterwards?
However, when I run it from the desktop, nothing seems to happen. I tried choosing the 'terminal' option, and also the 'run' option, but neither seems to work.
Any ideas gratefully received.
