Re: how to change name and command of icon in desktop?

  cd somedirectory ; runprogram
    it work! thank you.

Anyway, I still have a problm that I can't rename the icon.  I right-clicked the icon and selected "Edit" menu item, then I change the "Name[en_us...]" to whatever name,  but it didn't change in the desktop even though I tried to right-clicked on the desktop and select "Rescan ...".

The design whould allow editing of the properties in the interface that
assigned them in the first place. Thankfully the desktop object is generated
from a text file. So selecting "Edit" should open the file in your editor.

To change the startup directory, set the exec command like so:

  cd somedirectory ; runprogram
