    Default How to create shortcuts to app on desktop

    Hey Guys,

    I would like to know how to create shortcut on my desktop to apps.

    The first one I am trying is a shortcut to krdc.

    I right clicked on the desktop and selected "Create new -> Link to Application"

    Then I selected the appropriate icon.

    But from there I don't know what to do.

    Thanks

    The easiest way is to click the application in the main menu (don't release the mouse button) and drag & drop it on the desktop.

    If you want to create it manually from the Create Link to Application, then make the link, edit the Properties, click on that small icon in the properties and enter the application path in the command field.

    ah we so often want to ignore the command line tools which SuSE is born
    with....try this:

    - open a terminal

    - type

    which Krdc

    - press enter [assumes a 'Krdc', maybe it is 'krdc']

    - enjoy the ease of learning THE executable *which* is found in your
    path first....the one *which* will be executed if you execute *K[k]rdc*
    on your machine..

    can't find firefox? type which firefox

    and FASTER than a speeding bullet, i learn on MY machine it is
    /usr/bin/firefox

    ain't life wonderful?

    Awesome, DenverD.

    Just what I needed to know, to learn.

    That is perfect.

    Thanks
