Create Custom Launcher Ubuntu

You can still create a Launcher on the Desktop by using the old GUI dialog.

Get to your terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-item-edit

gnome-desktop-item-edit --create-new ~/Desktop

This will start the create launcher dialog. You can put the .desktop file this creates in any folder, and then drag and drop to the launcher.

Note: The package must be installed first, so if you have gnome-panel installed, then it is installed automatically.
