I had already created some desktop files, one for Talend & one for
eclipse (the deb packaged eclipse won't allow certain updates so I just
run a clean one from my ~/bin) but hadn't realised that starting it from
nautilus was the trick.
I appreciate it. I now have a launcher icon for Talend which seems to
start it ok.
However, I then minimised my app and the little arrow disappeared from
my Talend launcher icon and clicking on it it tries to start a new
instance of the app.
This *really* shouldn't be so hard!
