Need some clarification about the permissions of
.desktop files. I can see all the
.desktop files in
/usr/share/applications/ owned by root have permission,
$HOME owned by user has the same permission. All of those run properly.
But when I am going to create a custom
.desktop file having the same permission it is throwing the following error message,
Untrusted application launcher
The application launcher "myapp.desktop" has not been marked as trusted. If you do not know the source of this file, launching it may be unsafe.
But adding the execution permission is allowing it to run without any issue.
Q: Why custom
.desktopfiles need to have
+xpermissions to run or how some
.desktopfiles can run without execution permission? Is it possible to run a custom
.desktopfile without execution permission?
