I'm trying to get a launcher working for the WikidPad (python) program.
I already have a python program, so I looked into the file
/usr/share/applications/taskcoach.desktop. The exec line was simply
But I cannot start WikidPad just typing "WikidPad.py", I have to write
python WikidPad.py, then it starts correctly from the command line.
So I made the
.desktop file for wikidpad, in the exec line I wrote
But it seems that you have to be in the same directory in order to get correct results, otherwise there is the error
No module named pwiki.Enum.
So I changed the exec line into
cd /home/abc/wikidpad;python WikidPad.py.
But that did also not work, the error message was
cd could not be executed, file or directory not found.
If I want to execute a Linux command in a bash script and I get an error "command/file not found", I adjust the PATH variable or write the full path of the command. That normally helps.
But in this case,
cd is a built in bash command, and I cannot write
whereis cd in order to get the full path of the command.
I do not have any idea to get this going.
