In Windows I remember this was easy to do: simply right-click on the
executable and select Create Shortcut on Desktop. But how does one do it
in openSUSE/KDE4.7.3?

Thanks for any suggestions.


. Right click on Kickoff button (Chameleon in lower left corner) and select Edit Applications
. Use the Menu Editor app to create a menu item for your app
. Click on kickoff button and navigate the menus to your shortcut
. drag and drop the shortcut where you want it: desktop or launcher panel

Thanks, JC, did this the trick and was easy and painless :-) .

Always easy when you know how :-) .


Diapers and politicians should be changed often; both for the same reason.
