I am trying to launch OMXplayer and play a sequence of videos on loop on a RaspberryPi running Raspbian Wheezy. I have got a working shell script which launches and plays the videos courtesy of http://www.cenolan.com/2013/03/looping-video-playlist-omxplayer-raspberry-pi/
I have this placed in /home/pi/ and it is executable. I have created a file testsh.desktop in /usr/share/applications/ which I have also made executable. This file contains:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=true StartupNotify=true Name=Play Comment=Plays videos Exec=/home/pi/playvideos.sh Categories=Application;
I have also tried setting exec as:
Exec=lxterminal --command "/home/pi/playvideos.sh"
This isn't working and I guess I am missing something obvious.
