    12.04-LibreOffice 3.5.x-Add Icon to Desktop and Header/Footer bug?

    Has anyone else with Gnome-classic in 12.04 been able to get LO Writer as a Desktop shortcut?
    It can only be placed in the panel as a shortcut, I can't figure out how to get it on the Desktop?
    Thanks!

    You can drag launchers for most applications from the menu to the desktop as in earlier versions of Ubuntu. Unfortunately the launchers for all the LO applications do not work that way, and you have to mess around copying the .desktop files from either /usr/share/applications or direct from /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/xdg/writer.desktop as described in posts 22 - 25 of http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1966370

    There is something weird about the LO menu items that means they do not work when dragged to the desktop in Ubuntu, Xubuntu or Lubuntu.

    Has a bug been filed?
    Boggled that no one else seems to have minded this...
