    What path for creating shortcut?


    I unpacked firefox to the directory
    Code:
    /home/NAME/tmp/usr/local/firefox
    And when I put that path into the "link to application" or whatever it is I get the error message

    "KDEInit could not launch ':/home/NAME/tmp/usr/local/firefox':
    Could not find ':/home/NAME/tmp/usr/local/firefox' executable."

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks,
    Axis

    NOTE: I just noticed the colon before '/home' I tried removing that and I got
    "KDEInit could not launch /home/NAME/tmp/usr/local/firefox"
    Thats all it said.

    open terminal/konsole and cd to /home/NAME/tmp/usr/local folder. execute 'firefox'. does firefox window pop up?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Well I resolved the problem. Instead of just going to the file path, I needed to have it open the starter aswell (I feel rather stupid now actually)

    Thanks for your help,
