Ah, herein is the rub. I don't know where the program is stored. And with the Arduino one, I have installed and  removed it so many times trying to find a version that works for me that I am sure that my computer is full of junk. PS Arduino IDE vn.2 I couldn't get on with trying to find the hardware that i needed. It has a known bug.

You shouldn't need to know where the program is stored; just the command to 
launch it.  Since you say that it works from the command line, then you should 
have enough to get it to work.

It doesn't run from the command line, but it is found and runs from the search 
bar in the Application Launcher. When It is found this way, I can bring up the 
properties with a right click, but haven't yet found how to set it in the 
Application Launcher. Will try again later - duty calls.


I found the Microblocks in what Terry called the friendly name, and selected 
the application location and put that in the program name  in the application 
launcher menu item, and that sorted that.   Thanks Terry,

I found an Arduino link  as per Hugh's suggestion in 

But doing the same  as above doesn't work. It 'cannot find the application'

Correction: Using the full 'friendly' name does work, so everything is now 


Thanks everyone.


I did a locate on Arduino-arduinoide and found about 30 locations.

Still working on it.
