Just create a launcher in your desktop..

Right click in your desktop-->Click Create Launcher

It will bring a window.In the name field you can write wat ever name you want..In the command field type "mono /path/to/the/MYPROGRAM.exe" without quotes thats it.

Now you can click this shortcut to launch your program.
