[STICKY] How to add the "create launcher" option

Postby madvinegar » Wed Jul 25, 2012 7:58 am

This sticky is very useful.
I will explain an easy way to add the "create launcher" option on the nautilus menu.

1) First of all you need to install ubuntu-tweak.
To do this go here: http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ and download the deb file and install it.

2) Once ubuntu tweak is installed open it and navigate to: admins>scripts
You will see two vertical lists. One on the left side saying "enabled scripts" and one on the right side saying "disabled scripts".

3) On the list with the "disabled scripts" scroll down to find the option that says "create launcher". Now click on it and drag and drop it on the left side i.e. on the "enabled scripts" list.

Exit, and from now on when you right click on your desktop you will get the option scripts>create launcher.


Hope this is helpful!! :D

In case you want to create a web-page launcher you need to do the following:

Right-click on the desktop and select scripts>create launcher.

In the name field, just select and type in a name for your link.

In the command field, in order the website to be launched, you need first to write the browser of your choice and then the web-link.

i.e.

For chrome


For chromium
chromium-browser http://www.zoringroup.com


For firefox


For opera



The relevant browser icon will be created automatically! :D
