Mmm, that is close. I don't want an action.
I want a single Icon that looks something like this:
Exec=rdesktop -g 1280x1024 %f
The name of this icon is 'foobar' as determined by the rename action
when I right click on the icon. So I want the command to be 'rdesktop
-g 1280x1024 foobar'.
I hope this clears up some confusion. :)
