One Fish. Two Fish.

I made a posting on the Ubuntu Forums concerning my issue with Bluefish not starting and got the suggestion of running it from the command line.

It ran perfectly.

So, I looked at the command line associated with the icon in the menu.

bluefish -n -p %f

I deleted that non-functioning icon from the "Other" menu and found an inactive icon in the "Programming" menu, perhaps left over from a previous installation. The command line for that was:

bluefish %f

That icon worked so my problem all along was something to do with the command qualifiers. And, of course, the question of why it was working before and then stopped working, even after deleting the personal settings directory (~/.bluefish).

It works. I'm happy.
