Two program shortcuts on desktop after installation 2019

Post by huatrongkhang » Sun Sep 22, 2019 9:36 pm

So I installed a program and after the installation I was left with two shortcuts on the desktop. One of the shortcuts has the icon of the program, but not exactly similar to how it looks like I install it windows. It's like the original icon, but with a white background. And the name of the shortcut is "iCCup Launcher.Ink".

The second shortcut had a glass of redwine as icon and was named "iCCup Launcher".

It seems as though both of the shortcuts work allright and launches the program.

But I still wonder why this happens and if someone else has experienced this with other programs?

The *.lnk file is a Windows shortcut installed by the installer. You have configured your system to understand these files. Wine "translate" these Windows shortcuts to Linux *.desktop files.
