    Hello, I created a shortcut for Polycode on linux (app.desktop style) and when i open using the shortcut i get a garbled UI, that does not happen when launching by double clicking on Polycode app, any help will be much appreciated.

    Maybe you forgot to set the working directory to your polycode folder?

  3. @fodinabor Maybe you forgot to set the working directory to your polycode folder?

    all projects are in /home/myuser/Documents/Polycode/
    do i need to do anything different?

    There's a difference how you call the application: if you start it from the terminal it makes a difference if you call it via PolycodeDir/Polycode or directly from within the Polycode folder with Polycode as the working directory (the starting point for relative path names) is another one..

    You can specify the working directory in .desktop files with the path property as described here: https://linuxcritic.wordpress.com/2010/04/07/anatomy-of-a-desktop-file/ please set it to the directory in which the binary is found.

  5. oh now i understood, it's working properly now, thank you.
