[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: x2goclient
Version: v. 4.0.5.1 (Qt - 4.8.7)

To reproduce:

   1. Create a new session with type *Single application* and set *Command*
   to "Firefox" (with first F in uppercase). Click OK to save it.
   2. Choose "Session preferences" to edit the session.
   3. Set *Command* to "firefox" (all letters in lowercase).
   4. Either click OK to save it or just click to focus on some other field.
   5. The *Command* changes back to "Firefox" (with first F in uppercase).

There seems no way to correct such misspell. I had to delete and create a
new session.

Thanks.


Best,
x.

Have you tried entering a different command, say, "true", saving the
session, then changing it to the lowercase "firefox" entry and saving again?

Also, do check out the "Published Applications" feature, as it allows
you to offer not one, but several applications to your users, with a
single sign in and all running within the same connection.

By default, all applications in /usr/share/applications will be published.
If you want to restrict it to a subset, run this, as root:

rm /etc/x2go/applications
mkdir /etc/x2go/applications
chmod 755 /etc/x2go/applications

cp -a /usr/share/applications/whateveryouwant.desktop \
      /etc/x2go/applications/

If you replace the "Categories=" entry in the *.desktop files in
/etc/x2go/applications with "Categories=X2Go-Top", you will end up with
a "flat" start menu, which may be more to your liking if you only wish
to publish a few apps. Make sure you're not operating on a symlinked
/usr/share/applications folder, though, or you will mess up your regular
desktop entries.

Kind Regards,
Stefan Baur

Thanks for the reply.

I did try what you suggested - same problem. I think it stores all commands
that has been set. So when I set "firefox" again it just auto-set to the
one that has been stored and disregard the difference on letter case.
