Unhappy Creating a shortcut to the Desktop


Hello,

I am in the process of installing Oracle 9i Database on a Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (WS).
I want to create shortcuts to my desktop for certain application I intend to use.

How can I go about this ?

What desktop are you running? KDE? WindowMaker? Gnome?

Right click on the desktop > 'Create Launcher' type the whole path to the program choose a name for the launcher and an icon, if you want so. If is text based you have to type to open in a terminal and that's all.
