Description

Hello,
I use Tails 4.0 in persistent mode, I have several shortcuts in the folder: '/live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/dotfiles/Desktop/'

unfortunately, after each system restart I have to manually set 'Allow launching' for each shortcut.
Right click shortcut > Allow launching

Can you fix it somehow to save this setting to persistence?

Is there any current solution to this problem?

@tomassosik: What are these shortcuts for? Open a file? Execute a script? Something else?

Yes exactly, they are normal shortcut "name.desktop" for example, I have a shortcut for my own browser:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Exec="/home/amnesia/Persistent/tomas/Mozilla Firefox/_mozilla firefox/firefox" --no-remote --profile "/home/amnesia/Persistent/tomas/Mozilla Firefox/_mozilla firefox data" 
Icon=/home/amnesia/Persistent/tomas/Mozilla Firefox/_mozilla firefox/browser/chrome/icons/default/default128.png

@tomassosik did you tried looking onto the permissions of the file and the folder is in? Does it have the 'x' attribute?

I believe these settings are saved somewhere by GIO. I don't know where exactly, nor whether it's possible to make this persistent.

(I expect the best way we could solve this, if at all, would be by documenting what folder/file shall be made persistent.)

unfortunately I also do not know where these settings are stored and how they are managed.
I tried everything that came to my mind and nothing solved this problem.

Note however, that in Tails 4.0 there are two default icon shortcuts that do not have this problem.

But I have to say that the whole time I have been using linux, this problem is the most annoying of all :-D

Searching various forums and I'm not the only one who has a problem with this in the tails, even though I don't know how it should really be fixed.
