    Make shortcut when can't create it automatically ...

    ok, i'll show how to make shortcut, i found this way myself so ...

    first you need aplication ... i'll make shortcut for gnome terminal

    ok open text editor and paste code ... i use gedit text editor ..


    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Type=Application
    Name=gnome-terminal
    Comment=hi all ;D
    Categories=Application;
    Exec=/usr/bin/gnome-terminal
    Icon=gnome-terminal
    Terminal=false
    StartupNotify=false

    so, very easy to understand ...

    save it like "gnome-terminal.txt" , like name witch you wrote, so you think why txt file ? because then you can't create shortcuts like in gnome it can't create .desktop files ...

    next move this file to another folder, don't leave on desktop, and rename finally to "gnome-terminal.desktop" so thats all ...

    and don't forget make this link exucutable, you can do it right mouse click >> permissions>>"Allow executing file as program"

    you can make shortcuts yourself now, just rewrite aplication name and path ...
