How to launch a terminal app from the toolbar UNIX
For those of you out there that like to do M*ing (Moo, Mud, Muck, Mush, Cold, etc) there is a Unix program called TinyFugue that, to my knowledge, is the leading client for these types of games. This installs just fine on OSX and runs great. (You can go to FreshMeat to find TinyFugue)

I have found that if you just drag the file 'tf' (the TinyFugue app) to the Toolbar and click on it absolutely nothing happens.

Here is how you can get it working. You can go and Get Info on the 'tf' file itself, then 'Show Application' and set it to 'A specific application' and have it fire up Terminal. You will need to set it to show 'All Applications' and you will get a warning that it is not known if this application will launch up this file, but it works great.

I do not know if this works with all terminal based apps, but it did work for TinyFugue.

I think that if you append any file with .command that the finder will run it with terminal as well.
