    Hey. What I want to "install" is a link to a virtual machine (xen) on my desktop. I want to be able to press the icon and immediately start the machine.

    If anyone has soem knowledge about creating shortcuts, please let me know.

    You just need to drag the icon to the desktop.
    Or you can go to the desktop folder and right click > new > link to application
    select the icon and name in the general tab and add the path in the application tab > command field.
    This will show up on the desktop if you are using a folder view

    Um... where to put the command? It needs to be executed as root and I'd like to have it as an icon on my desktop....
