On a similiar subject, what about doing the same to launch applications from the panel. I can see how to do it under kde2 if the application is in the menu, but what if it's not for some reason (e.g. gv and in my case mozilla) or I want to launch an app with a particular command.
Again, I can guess how to do this on the desktop, but I want to be able to launch applications from the panel.
On a related note, is it possible (in Suse 7.3, kde2) to perform the same operations on the tasks in a Windowlist as on a Taskbar. i.e. I can r-click running applications on the taskbar and get a menu of options including 'Bring to current desktop' and want to be able to do the same with the list of applications in the Windowlist. I want the advantages of the taskbar without cluttering it with applications from different desktops, basically.
Is there an embarrassingly easy solution or are these features maybe in kde3?

Can anyone help me? I have a few applications that I would kike to be able to launch from desktop eg mozilla, OO, synaptic and others. How do I go about creating a icon or link to these that will allow me to launch from desktop.
Right-click on the desktop -> New -> Link to a application. A window opens. In the first tab, choose a name for the icon and an icon. In the second, do nothing. In the third, type or select the name of the application. In the fourth, do nothing (unless you want to link the application to a particular file type). That's it!
