I am maintaining a Jekyll-powered blog and on my local machine its git repository is located at
/home/fusion809/GitHub/fusion809.github.io to edit it in Atom I have created this application launcher (which is saved at
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=edblog GenericName=edblog Type=Application; Categories=TextEditor;Atom Exec=atom ~/GitHub/fusion809.github.io TryExec=/usr/bin/atom ~/GitHub/fusion809.github.io Icon=atom.png
For a reason that escapes me whenever I run
edblog.desktop by double-clicking it I get an error message:
Failed to execute file "edblog": Invalid desktop file
I have tried substituting
/home/fusion809 to no effect.
