Terminal in System Tools doesn't work

Bug #25959 reported by David Briscoe on 2005-11-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xfce4-terminal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Using Add Applications in Applications menu, you can add Terminal to System
Tools, but it doesn't work. If you try to launch, it says:

Cannot launch entry
Details: Failed to execute child process "Terminal" (No such file or directory)

(Note that it appears to be a different Terminal from the one in
Applications/Accessories. The icon is a dollar sign inside of a terminal window.)

Thanks for your bug report.

The upstream author uses 'Terminal' as the binary name, and
the Debian and Ubuntu packages use 'xfce4-terminal', but
the .desktop file in the Applications menu isn't changed
to reflect that.

Fix for the .desktop file

This patch fixes the .desktop file to point to use xfce4-terminal instead
of Terminal as the binary name.
