  1. make sure that the desktop shortcust is executable Untrusted application launcher?
  2. the icon is valid and in the correct path
  3. on another compute the same desktop scripts works
  4. I am the owener of the desktop shortcusts and the directory ./local/share/gvfs-metadata/home* Untrusted Application Launcher
