I’m manually adding an icon for X-Plane 11 to the Favorites bar using the Main Menu app. I did this by using
as the command in the little Launcher Properties window, and then right clicking and selecting “Add to Favorites” when it appears in the menu with all the other applications. The resulting icon works to launch X-Plane. However, when the sim is running, a second blank X-Plane icon appears on Favorites bar instead of a dot appearing under the icon to denote that that program is running as is the case for all the other icons. Anybody know how I can fix this? Thanks.
The issue is that the X-Plane script in your home directory is not the executable used to run X-Plane. The dock/panel is showing that you started the script and then that another executable was started and is also being shown in the dock/panel.
Is there a X-Plane icon in the Activities list that is launchable as well?
In I’m with Florian, thanks for playing X-Plane on Fedora (which I hold as the superior flight sim experience)!
