Description of problem:
I made a launcher for an application, the after some time I upgraded the app,
and the path changes. Then I wanted ti update the launcher, so I right clicked
the icon and choose properties. I was hoping to find a tab to edit the path, but
there isn't one. I had to open an xterm and manually edit the .desktop file,
changing the old path to the new one.
A beginner will never be able to do that. So please add a tab in the properties
window so that even beginners can change path and other options.
Thanks.
