Thanks!

Debugging is off.

No one of these options is on.

A KDE link is a Windows like shortcut on the desktop, not a symbolic unix
like link.

I solved the prob with setting a reference (in the properties of the Link)
to a script.
The script has just one line, that which calles my executable.

When starting a script, a usual shell environment is provided to the
Installer packed app.
And that seems the poblem with that KDE Links, they seem not to provide an
environment to the applikation.

Thanks a lot,
Harald
