    How to create a launcher for the Tor Browser Bundle?

    I've been using the Tor Browser Bundle (TBB) for a long time, but I've never installed it. Now I'd like to install it and create a desktop launcher for it.

    If I understand correctly, I should extract the TBB package to a location like /usr/local/bin and then create a launcher that links to the start-tor-browser script. The question is, how do I create a launcher? I found this YouTube video, but it relies on a tool -- Create Launcher -- which I don't find in the Ubuntu Software Center. How should I attack this?

    Thanks, tiago-manuel -- that was exactly the hint that I needed!

    Let me mention one trick I learned, in case it helps somebody else. Within the .desktop that defines the launcher, I had no luck specifying an icon with
    Code:
    Icon=~/my.icon.directory/my.icon
    When I gave the absolulte path of my home directory instead of using ~, I got the icon I wanted.
