    Help with commands for quick launchers.


    Hi.

    Im using XFCE 4.2.

    What command do i need to enter into a quick launch icon, for example, to launch acroread, i need to, in a terminal:
    Code:
    cd /usr/share/Acrobat5/bin
    ./acroread
    but if in a terminal i:

    Code:
    jammin@Jupiter:~$ ./usr/share/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
    bash: ./usr/share/Acrobat5/bin/acroread: No such file or directory
    jammin@Jupiter:~$ ./ /usr/share/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
    bash: ./: is a directory
    jammin@Jupiter:~$ .//usr/share/Acrobat5/bin/acroread
    bash: .//usr/share/Acrobat5/bin/acroread: No such file or directory
    jammin@Jupiter:~$
    So, im a little puzzled to what to enter into the command box when adding a new shortcut.

    ???

    Thanks much.
