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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a launcher for an app
2. change the path of the app
3. the launcher now is useless
4. i have to manually edit the .desktop file or re-create it !
gnome-panel has this now...
