    hey paul hows it going?
    i tried that first off the bat b4 i posted and that didnt work. i remember this happened last time but i dont know what i did to remedy the situation.

    i did ln "-s runLime/sh /home/sd/Desktop" which creates the link but like before, it just hangs and never runs. still baffled. ???

    Maybe try making your own shell script on the desktop that calls the runxxx.sh in it's environment?
