Problem during execution on file.desktop

Hello,

I'll try to customize a new desktop menu, using a file like this one

[Desktop Entry]
Name=AREACATSF8LNX
Exec=xterm -T "WORK AREA" -bg B4F8F8 -cm -fg black -cr red -ms red -bd black -fn 10x20 -e ssh -X USER@`hostname`
Comment=
Icon=gnome-xterm
NoDisplay=false
Type=Application
Categories=Utility;

but it doesn't work.

Have You any suggestion regarding my issue?

Many thanks in advance

     Regards

    Luciano

Re: Problem during execution on file.desktop

I need to open a new xterm with this setup

xterm -T "WORK AREA" -bg B4F8F8 -cm -fg black -cr red -ms red -bd black -fn 10x20 -e ssh -X USER@`hostname`

but I cannot do it with my .desktop file.

Can You help me to solve this issue?

   regards

Re: Problem during execution on file.desktop

Try this:

xterm -T "WORK AREA" -bg "#B4F8F8" -cm -fg black -cr red -ms red -bd black -fn 10x20 -e 'ssh -X USER@`hostname`'

Fixed the bg colour code and added single quotes for ssh command.
