no options available for private/new window/newtab in .desktop launcher

Unread post by sangheeta » 2019-01-26, 16:01

Hello,

Is there a way to open PM directly in private mode, I mean, from my task bar's launcher.
I have modified it, but there are no options when I right click on it.

But the command line works in a terminal, and doesn't works with: %u. :wtf:

This is a really strange behavior.
I've tried this, but no options appears with right click

Code: Select all

[Desktop Action new-window]
Name=Open a New Window
Name[fr]=Nouvelle fenêtre
Exec=/home/san/Applications/palemoon-28.3.1.linux-x86_64/palemoon/palemoon --new-window

[Desktop Action new-private-window]
Name=Open a New Private Window
Name[fr]=Nouvelle fenêtre de navigation privée
Exec=/home/san/Applications/palemoon-28.3.1.linux-x86_64/palemoon/palemoon --private-window

[Desktop Action new-tab]
Name=Open a New Tab
Name[fr]=Nouvel onglet
Exec=/home/san/Applications/palemoon-28.3.1.linux-x86_64/palemoon/palemoon --new-tab about:newtab
Otherwise on the installation guide, concerning the launcher, these options are not there. This may mean that it is not (yet) available?

thank you

(I don't know launchers, or Linux, but...)

See if using a single dash works?
So -private-window rather then --private-window ?


Also note that a new window opened from within a Private Window - using the Ctrl+N shortcut key, opens in a NON Private Window.
