Hi Martin Gregorie
No I haven't but I will, and I have tried Exec=/mystic/mis -d but doesn't want to appear but will read the unix-install.txt with this one have tried Exec="/mystic/mystic -l and Exec="/mystic/mystic -cfg and both work thank you just have to play around with Exec="/mystic/mis -d" or go the usualy way via terminal ie sudo ./mis -server

okay, I had a quick look at unix-install.txt so will study it and have a go at the above suggestion, thank you

cool,thats sound like a good suggestion.

okay, I get a "Linux for Dummies" and study it.
Thank you for your help with this.
