I want know how to make a shortcut for rdesktop, the remote desktop client?
I installed it with this command:
sudo apt-get install rdesktop
I searched in the path
/usr/share/applications/ but I see any resktop.desktop
Can you help to do that?

Create a new text file called
rdesktop.desktop in the
/home/pi/Desktop/ directory, e.g.
[Desktop Entry] Name=rdesktop Comment=RDesktop Shortcut Icon=/path/to/a/icon/for/the/rdesktop/shortcut Exec=/usr/share/applications/rdesktop Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Terminal=false Categories=None;
Name – The name you want displayed
Comment – Your comment
Icon – A file to use for the icon. Your own or have a look in the
/usr/share/pixmaps/ directory for something suitable.
Exec – The executable (can include sudo if your executable uses the IO). Can be the name of an executable program, or more complex, e.g.
Exec=lxterminal –command "less /root/README.TXT"
for other keyboard letters (eg. è,é,etc...), get a virtual (onscreen) keyboard: First thing to do:
Second you will need to update your repositories:
sudo apt-get update
An upgrade to the whole system isn't needed but it is recommended:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Now we can install the virtual keyboard (matchbox):
sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
Rebooting is recommended:
Now you can access the keyboard:
MENU >> ACCESSORIES >> KEYBOARD
If the keyboard isn't visible in the menu you can enable it by going to:
MENU >> PREFERENCES >> Main Menu Editor
There you will be able to enable the keyboard.
If everything has gone perfectly you will now have an onscreen keyboard.
