click install and
click register to install a click app on Ubuntu (not Ubuntu Touch). The version was 0.5.1.
Now, a new version (v0.5.6) is available and I installed it using the same method.
I know the new version is installed because the
current directory points to
$ ll /opt/click.ubuntu.com/com.ubuntu.developer.mdspencer.ubuntu-tasks/ total 16 drwxr-xr-x 4 clickpkg clickpkg 4096 Oct 18 10:19 ./ drwxr-xr-x 8 clickpkg clickpkg 4096 Sep 13 21:22 ../ drwxr-xr-x 10 clickpkg clickpkg 4096 Sep 13 20:01 0.5.1/ drwxr-xr-x 10 clickpkg clickpkg 4096 Oct 18 10:19 0.5.6/ lrwxrwxrwx 1 clickpkg clickpkg 5 Oct 18 10:19 current -> 0.5.6/
However, when I launch the application from the Dash, the about page still shows v0.5.1.
So my question is, how can I find out where the
.desktop file that I'm launching resides so I can understand why the correct version isn't being launched? I'm also simply curious to learn where the click
.desktop files live. Is there some tool that shows where a given
.desktop file is, or is there a way to see the equivalent to
