I turned the Amazon cloud reader site https://read.amazon.com into a desktop app with
nativefier. It works amazingly well as a standalone reader for books that have been downloaded and also automatically downloads books in the cloud when requested.
Instead of launching
/home/myname/kindle-web-linux-x64/kindle-web from the console all the time, I tried to make a Kindle-Web desktop file to place in the launcher. My file won't work in two ways:
- It won't launch Kindle-Web.
- It does not display the Kindle icon on the file when viewed in Nautilus.
The code is below. Can anyone tell me where I went wrong. The icon files are in
