This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Create a .desktop file, say read-info1.desktop and add the following lines:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Read info1
Comment=Read the info1.txt file in Terminal
Exec=gnome-terminal -x sh -c 'cat /home/YOUR-USERNAME/info1.txt; exec bash'

Of course put your actual username in place of YOUR-USERNAME in the Exec= line.
