On my Grand-Daughters PC I have removed all references to a web browser from her Menu and created SSB’s for the websites she uses which is fine, however she uses Cairo Dock and it will only allow me to add 1 SSB to the dock
ie she has 4 SSB’s and I can select any one of them and add it to the dock but any subsequent one I try to add after that will only give me a duplicate of the first one added
I tried copying all 4 SSB .desktop files to /usr/share/applications but that didn’t work
Any help would be much appreciated
Can you give me the .desktop file name and contents of say two of them … so I can test it.
Ok I’m not home at the moment but I can give your the URL’s and the names I gave them
(1) http://www.uptoten.com/ which is named "Boowa and Kwala,
(2) https://www.istorybooks.co/ which is named Storybook
if that’s not any good to you let me know and I’ll sort it out when I get home
I’d rather have the exact .desktop file names (not the name displayed) and their contents, so I can check the contents too
And the names of the .desktop files ?
Sorry I thought the names were included in the files
chloe@Chloe-Linux ~ $ ls ~/.local/share/applications
boowakwala.desktop expressbypixlr.desktop mimeapps.list
chromium-browser.desktop firstpersontetris.desktop onlineuserguide.desktop
ddchess.desktop gmail.desktop peppermintforum.desktop
editorbypixlr.desktop googlecalendar.desktop solitr.desktop
email.desktop googledrive.desktop storybook.desktop

I take it this works on your other boxes with Cairo Dock ?
I know we had problems a while back with getting them to work with docky … but is this the first time you’ve tried adding SSB’s to Cairo ?
Just a thought, but I wonder what would happen if you changed their “Exec=” line from say
Exec=bash -c "chromium-browser --app=https://www.istorybooks.co/"
and/or comment out the “StartupWMClass=Chromium” line so it now reads:
