[OPEN] Enable to launch a script from launcher

Post by archil »

Hello,
I installed with yay a script to clean the system (cleanupdate-git) and I am able to launch it from cli,
not from icon. I get the msg: Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator - Input/output error
I tried to edit the application using differents working directories, but with no results
