Re: Launcher types


Drop the dialog altogether.  Clicking "New Launcher" pops up the Run
dialog, clicking "Ok" creates the launcher which you can then rename or
set an icon for.  Or you can just drag the Run dialog's icon to
someplace to create a launcher.  Editing the launcher just brings up the
Run dialog again slightly modified ("Ok" instead of "Run").  Translators
could use a special tool to add translations.

This might be too extreme/confusing though. I guess we could do a simple
druid to wrap it up a little.
