I'm running deb-packaged 2.6.0~pre1. I have an existing config in ~/linuxcnc/configs. In pickconfig, when I select that ini, the "Create Desktop Shortcut" checkbutton is disabled. I think it should be enabled so I can have it create the shortcut for launching.
pickconfig.tcl uses ok_to_copy_config to decide whether this should be enabled. In my case, it is not ok (unnecessary) to copy the config because it's already in ~/linuxcnc/configs, but I would still like to be able to create the launching shortcut.
