menus/newly installed apps/menu creation
OK i am new to linux (approaching 2 months) but i have been here since even before i was new (luckily o didn't yet know what questions to ask so i was able to read without posting). but i had a thousand questions then and now a thousand seems like a small number
i am running mandrake 10 on one of my machines and pretty much using it as my primary linux learning experience right now. i want to say i have figured out how to install apps but i would be lying. however i can say i have just finished installing mozilla firefox, followed by importing java into firefox. and installing macromedia flashplayer 6 into both (yeah i think that is pretty decent when i don't really know what i am doing yet).
my questions is now that i have installed firefox how do i create it onto my mandrake menu instead of having to always go back and launch it from the shell or with a command? i still have the shell i created and the one that came with firefox. so what do i need to do to create an icon or just place a quick launch type button on my k menu?
i understand this is likely to be a very simple or stupid question and this stumbling block isnt much for those more experienced. i am looking for the answers even now. so if you happen to have the answers or even a pointer i am all ears. and if your pointers are even on similar subjects i am still very intersted. so if you are so inclined and if not thankx.
linux (though i am not a master......YET) rocks!
