Add an option to open a launcher app in a terminal

Registered by Kuang Chen on 2008-08-11

To add to launcher an application which is supposed to start in an terminal window (like mutt), the user have to run for example "gnome-terminal -e mutt" , which is indirect and difficult to figure out for a linux newbie. So maybe we could allow the users to choose if they want their applications to start normally (like firefox, pidgin, etc) or start in a terminal window (like mutt).

Whiteboard

This is more of a fix to the launcher editor than a blueprint...

Also, while I will fix this, I'd argue that a "linux newbie" probably would not be running terminal apps such as mutt.
