I have Ubuntu 20.04 LTS installed with default GNOME Shell.
Then I have created symlink for some application on the
~/Desktop folder with
ln -s /usr/bin/xclock ~/Desktop/xclock
xclock is just an example, it is ELF binary executable)
Now it looks like shown below:
Clicking on this file does nothing, the execution bit is already set. There is no "Mark as Trusted" in the drop-down menu.
How can I launch this symlink while avoiding creating special .desktop-file for its linked executable?
