    Question Steam does not create system starters for some games

    For some games I installed, steam hasn't created system starters. So I can't access them from the system software menu, and I can't search for them in the program search. How can I force Steam to create these launchers?


    I started steam from the terminal, the output is shown below. I tried to create a shortcut for a game that already had won, and then the following message came: "A shortcut has been created and placed on your desktop". Wen I then wanted to create a shortcut for a game that had none, the message was: "Could not create shortcut. A shortcut to this game is probably already on the desktop.


    Here's the output of the terminal:
