I've create a simple file.desktop from chromium but every time I click on it it prompt :

this file seems a script whatn you want to do?

Execute Execute in terminal Open Cancel

This happen with all files .desktop on the Desktop folder.

this is an example:

#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/chromium --profile-directory=Default --app-id=ffgolldjdihlhdjkieofmjgjikkcbjbj

How can I set all for Execution without prompt?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

The string #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open should not be in a .desktop file.

These files are simple INI files defining how to open an application, not scripts to be executed.

Delete this erroneous line and try again.
