I have downloaded the portable version of XMind and extracted the relevant folder/files. In Nautilus, if I browse to the relevant executable file, xmind and click the file, the programme runs.
I then created a menu entry (using alacarte) to create a shortcut for the programme. When I click on the shortcut I get a message telling me that an error has occurred and to look in a log file (the location of which does not exist).
I then opened Configuration editor and created a shortcut key in /apps/metacity/global_keybindings and apps/metacity/keybinding_commands
When I press my desired shortcut keys I get a message "There was an error running "usr/bin/xmind/XMindforLinux64bit/xmind":
Failed to execute child process "usr/bin/xmind/XMindforLinux64bit/xmind" (No such file or directory)."
However, the file and directory do exist because I can locate and execute the file manually.
Please can anyone help me to understand what I am missing. Do I need to change the properties/permissions of the executable (I notice that my link to Fx is a shell script not an executable, I wonder if that is the problem).
