Desktop icon with Java Web Start

Discussion in 'Java' started by Rene Grothmann, Mar 12, 2007.

  1. I am trying to find any reliable information, wether or not Java Web
    Start can create desktop icons on other systems than Windows.
    Specifically, I'd been interested in Linux and Mac OSX. I have a JNLP
    file, which creates the icons on Windows, but not on Linux (at least
    not Knoppix 5.1.1). In fact, the javaws program immediately removes
    the shortcut tag from the JNLP file. But I could not find any
    documents on this behavior.

    Maybe someone knows, where this is documented, or how I could enforce
    an icon on Linux?
