Default AC3D shortcut on Linux

For some reason AC3D 8 shortcuts (launcher) don't seem to work on Linux Ubuntu or Mint, regardless of whether they're desktop or menu shortcuts, which forces me to go to the folder itself every time I want to run it.

Is this a known Linux issue and is there a trick to make it work?

You'll need to set AC3D_HOME to point to the location where the AC3D binary resides, either globally or in a script.

Please excuse my ignorance, but how do I do that exactly?

Untested but something like this:

Put this in a file:

Quote:
#!/bin/bash
export AC3D_HOME=/(your path to AC3D)
$AC3D_HOME/ac3d

make sure it's executable (e.g. chmod +x)

Then you can start AC3D by running that script. You can also make a shortcut to that script.
