New Desktop Launchers
« on: May 23, 2020, 07:03:22 pm »
Hi,

When adding "desktop launchers" I have to go to each one  and right click and "click trust executable".

I have Preferences set to "don't ask questions on launch"  in File Manager. I have not had this
problem with other Distro's. Can someone help?

Thanks.

SparkyLinux 6 (Po-Tolo) LXQT.
uname -a 5.6.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.6.7-1 (2020-04-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have Preferences set to "don't ask questions on launch"  in File Manager. I have not had this
problem with other Distro's. Can someone help? Every time I make a launcher I have to right
click on the ICON and set "Trust this executable". Gets annoying because I have to test different
launchers with different applications.

Thanks

PCmanFM-qt -> Edit -> Preferences -> Launch executable files without prompt  and  Reboot.

There is no option for: PCmanFM-qt -> Edit -> Preferences -> Launch executable files without prompt

The only option is: "don't ask questions on launch" which I already set.

Made no difference, I still get the red '!' in the middle of the icon.

Of course there is such option. I know because I checked. I installed sparky potolo with lxqt inside virtual machine. This option exists and works ( partially ). Enabling it stops annoying question but does not hide red exclamation mark.
