Desktop launcher Pingus



Hi everybody,
 
I finally found how to make a launcher for The Pingus game;
For my setup, I put the downloaded binaries in /home/myuserfolder/pingusfolder/
To start the game in a terminal I was writing /home/myuserfolder/pingusfolder/games/pingus which is the binary
The error message I got was something similar to ''coudn't find data/core.scr should use -d argument''
By using -d argument pointing to /home/myuserfolder/pingusfolder/share/games/data/,
I was always get the same error message ''coudn't find data/core.scr should use -d argument''
The solution was so simple, I just read the error message more carefully and point my -d argument
a folder behind, the game is not looking for a file but a folder and a file.
Now I use /home/myuserfolder/pingusfolder/pingus -d /home/myuserfolder/pingusfolder/share/games/
It start with a terminal
And when I created the launcher with the same command line, I choose ''run in a terminal''
Everything is good now !
My Fedora system is equipped with a great game, and my kids are happy !
 
Tonamiben the newbie ! :-)
