Just loaded up my first Linux workstation. Using Slackware 8.1 w/ KDE 3.0.
Downloaded tn5250 (0.16.5)  from sourceforge.net and installed it. If I
issue from terminal: tn5250 env.DEVNAME='LINUX01' Everything
works fine. However when I try to create a desktop link to this
application, it will try to initialize then just quit. If I tell the
'shortcut' (I'm a windows guy) to run in  terminal, it tries to start a
terminal session then just quits. Here is the string I'm using:
'/usr/local/bin/tn5250' env.DEVNAME='LINUX01'

Thanks a bunch,
