You must be using edubuntu... FC6 doesn't have gksudo. I wish it were that easy.
I couldn't exec it either, it said path not found.
Any other ideas?

Try setting the launcher to run 'gksudo /usr/sbin/fl_teachertool'
I don't know all the details, but 'gksudo' is supposed to be used in a
graphical environment, where 'sudo' is to be used in a terminal.

I have my /etc/sudoers set up to allow teachers to run fl_teachertool without entering a password. sudo /usr/sbin/fl_teachertool works like a charm from the terminal. When I create a launcher to run that command though it does nothing. If I change the launcher to run in a terminal it works perfectly again. Any idea how to make it run without needing to open a terminal?
