How to make shortcut to program in KDE


I recently installed xine on my system using the command line. I have no clue where the program is installed at. Can anybody help me figure that out and then tell me how I can put a shortcut for it in my KDE menu?

As far as I know xine is a library but not a program. So you have to install a front-end like gxine to actually watch multimedia files.

For your reference:

for my frontend I installed xine-ui....it works great. Whenever I click on a video file it automatically starts it. I want to make a shortcut to the program in my kde but I have no clue where the program is or what to make a link to.

Supposed that your run the program in CUI by typing xine-ui. The following command will show you where it is installed.

$ which xine-ui

Remember the path. Then, on KDE desktop, right-click to show the menu.
Select "Create New" -> "Link to Application". On the "General" tab, type in the name of the shortcut and click on the icon to select an icon. Then go to the "Execute" tab, type the path of the program into the "Command" box. Click "Ok" and you are done!
