Have you read /mystic/unix-install.txt ?
If you haven't, then do so and then do exactly what it says. Hint: you
must be logged in and running a shell interactive session and have
changed directory into /mystic:
$ cd /mystic
before you can install and configure the bbs.
If you *must* start mystic from the desktop, then Exec="/mystic/mis -d"
would appear to be what you need, but you must have run './install' and
then configured mystic before trying to execute "mis -d" for the first
time, or running it is likely to fail.
And anyway, why would you ever want to start something like mystic from
the desktop when you can configure your RPi to start it automatically as

You'll probably need a copy of "Linux in a Nutshell" at some point, so
you may as well get one now if you don't already have it or something
similar, such as "Linux for Dummies" - a bad choice of title, since most
of the "... for Dummies" books are good to have if you don't already have
some knowledge of what an operating system does and how to configure and
run it. The "Nutshell" book assumes you already know another operating
system quite well, while the "Dummies" books don't assume much prior
knowledge at all.
