I am trying to create a .desktop file for the calcurse ncurses calendar application:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=calcurse Comment=an ncurses calendar TryExec=calcurse Exec=lxterminal -e calcurse Terminal=true
Problem: The only thing that happens when I click the menu entry is that I am presented with an empty terminal, no calcurse anywhere. Having
Exec=calcurse produces the same result.
lxterminal -e calcurse from within a terminal does launch a new terminal window with the calcurse application running as expected.
How should I configure my .desktop file for it to launch the ncurses application instead of just an empty terminal?
