Last weekend I did an upgrade of my Laptop from Ubuntu 18.10 to 19.04. And today I noticed that all my desktop shortcuts where rendered in just .desktop shortcuts. Clicking opened them just as tekstfiles in the Gnome-editor.
That’s very not convenient. It looks like that some functionality in the latest Nautilus (the gnome filemanager) incarnation where moved to extensions or soever. Leaving me with a bunch of unusable chrome-ejrwhekr.desktop files.
But the solution is simple. Just rightclick on the .desktop icon and select Allow Launching. That’s all. My shortcuts with icons are back again.
