I have just installed the final 17.04 Release. Having problems with the Unity Launcher (not Dash, don't use that), compared to what has always worked in 16.04 & 14.04.
[To create a shortcut on Launcher I always run the program first from the shell, then when it's running I right-click its icon in Launcher and Lock to Launcher: if that is not the right way to do things let me know.]
term and locked it to Launcher, the right-click menu offers Terminal, but no longer New Terminal as it used to. Since obviously I will want multiple terminal windows, where has that option gone/how do I restore it?
To be clear, I am finding the New Terminal is missing no matter which way I lock the icon from.
I have discovered
/usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop. It includes line:
In 16.04 that line was:
If I change line to remove the "
7" (and remove locked icon and re-lock) I now get New Terminal again on right-click. However, there is something odd, because although I can open a new terminal now from that icon, it launches a single new icon for the new terminal and that one does not offer New Terminal.
I think this is the area of difference from old behaviour, anyone care to explain? (I hope new Unity has not removed New Terminal deliberately and wants you to middle-mouse-click instead?)
