Linux.desktop has not been marked as trusted

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

Also it can read "linux.desktop". When I click twice on it, I am getting the following error message:


Untrusted application launcher
The application launcher “linux.desktop” has not
 been marked as trusted. If you do not know the
source of this file, launching it may be unsafe.

I need to solve this error. Please help. Thanks in advance

Seems a bit weird issue because such things do not happen a lot as the linux is more advanced now and does not allow such errors to come. Well first thing is to update the package of linux which you are using.

After that make sure that the installation is not corrupted or interrupted at any part so that you proceed to next step.

When you create a shortcut on the desktop of the linux you have to set few attributes that are important for the successful launch of the application. This can be the reason to your problem.

First assume the administrator rights of the system and then do the settings.

You can also use the following command to solve the problem.

sudo chmod ugo+rx *.desktop
