View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop short cuts - is this method ok?

October 11th, 2012, 12:15 AM
Had a look at several web sites and this forum for creating desktop shortcuts and to be honest they all looked long winded. So instead I tried opening the dashboard and dragging the icon to the desk top.

My question - is this method okay?

Seems fine -- drag the desktop icon over to a gedit window, and inspect its inner technicalities.

Seems fine!

Thought I maybe creating another instance of an application

but if it's just a link then that's great

I have gnome installed, and cannot seem to do that. If it works for you it should be okay.

I do it. Simple, not much effort required.
