    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-panel
    Save this script as Create_Desktop_launcher for a right click nautilus script item.
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
    Place in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ and make executable.

    The resize icon is there when you click on a desktop icon.

    While that command works, it is insufficient in the vanilla 11.10 install because it uses a gnome-panel binary that does not exist in your install. I know because I ran into this myself.

    You can either install gnome-panel, or if you want the ability to display and edit the menus using the former Ubuntu look and feel, you should install alacarte.

    You can find either using the Ubuntu Software Center.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
