Super easy (??'s) re:restore Icon in Menu / command line run

Post by WhereIsMyMindAT » 2014-11-24, 18:21

Hey, thanks for reading. Have simple question. (well, 2)

1st-How do I restore the Icon to my Menu (Gnome/XFCE4--Menu--upper left_) . (unrelated to PM--lost several Icons, reinstalling the "environment" restored most--not Palemoon.
(tried to run the installer again--simplify to lay down over installed---says need to install other first)--don't mind doing that, but will I lose my Profile/Extension???

Thus prefer a command line fix.

The "dead" Icon, points to /opt/palemoon %u however trying that from command line does not work. (even in root)

root@Dooley:/home/bender# /opt/palemoon %u
bash: /opt/palemoon: Is a directory
(that's the command line for the dead icon properties).

2nd-For future, How do I command line start PM? ??? Of course FF is simple "firefox"---PM won't fire like that for me. (not a custom install).

Only time I've tar balled an install that needed manual icon set up was OpenOffice...and don't think (??????) this works for Palemoon.

(open office)
Integrate the Desktop
sudo dpkg -i en-US/DEBS/*.deb

No, you will not lose any of your profile data (extensions, history, bookmarks) by uninstalling or reinstalling Pale Moon. If you want to manually edit the file, open /usr/share/applications/palemoon.desktop and correct the icon entry there.

As for command line launching, "palemoon" should work... if it doesn't try /opt/palemoon/palemoon.
