I don't know much of anything SUSE but I'll go out on a limb and assume your working with a distro that supports the KDE desktop. In KDE, you right click anywhere on the desktop. On the popup, go to Create New --> File --> Link to Application.... In the general tab, give it an appopriate name. Then click on the application tab. Click the browse button and find the app you want to link to.
Hope that helps.
