I am using the Gnome Classic desktop for my Ubuntu 12.04 PC. One of the thing that I am not able to do at the moment is placing program launchers (plus icon) on the desktop. I can create an item for the program on the 'Applications' menu but I prefer clicking on an icon on the desktop to launch a program. Anybody can give me pointers on how to do this?
- Open Nautilus
- Got to 'file' - 'Scripts' - 'Create Launcher'
- Choose type and choose application type, fill in name (what you want to call it), command (how to run it) and comment (if you want)
- You can change the icon by clicking it and then choosing the appropriate icon
You'll find the launcher on your desktop
