Re: Sweet Home 3D 6.0
To all <?> Ubuntu users who have problems running the beta version.

Thanks to the help of UbuntuBirdy I now can try the beta version 6. Here are the program lines you need:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Sweet Home 3D BETA 611
GenericName=Interior 2D design application with 3D preview
Generic Name[de]=Innenraumplaner
Comment=Interior design Java application for quickly choosing and placing furniture on a house 2D plan drawn by the end-user with a 3D preview
Comment[de]=Innenraumplaner zum Auswählen und Platzieren von Möbeln auf einem 2D-Hausplan mit 3D-Vorschau
Exec=sh -c "/home/hans/SweetHome3D-beta611/SweetHome3D-Java3D-1_5_2" %U
Name[de_CH]=SweetHome3D BETA 611

Note the following:
- you can change the Name and GenericName to whatever you like
- you can leave out the Comment lines
- you can change [de] and [de-CH] to your own language
- in the path names change "hans" to your own user name
- make sure that the path name /SweetHome3D-beta611/ points correctly to your file (name and location)
- open a Text Editor and copy the above text
- save and name the file xxx.desktop where xxx is the name you want
- then copy the script to /home/hans/.local/share/applications/
- this is a hidden file, so you need to do CTRL-H to show the file

- under the start button, type SW and SH3D should show up

Thank you very much Birdy!!!
