Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

but you're not (using Gnome), so fix the procedure to apply to your situation.
I went googling for two minutes, looking for a prebuilt make-a-link (cli) program, but no luck.
PS. I assume you understand why `ln' won't do the trick for you.
Dude you do that using the KDE command center. I don't really know what file the shortcuts are held in, and frankly, I don't care.
I know how to deal commandline with commandline stuff (and some more), but creating keyboard shortcuts just isn't my thing.
If you want to start a particular program when you press a particular key, try hotkeys. It's a nifty little program with a nifty little config file and a nifty edge . Google it up, you know you want to
