why did you put in into root directory?!? should be in /usr/local/firebird directory or similar...then you can create a new 'link to application' ion desktop and make it execute that file (e.g. /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird)

@ core: he probably meant executable (e.g. file named MozillaFirebird)...

@ksd: right click on desktop, then select create new (or similar) -> link to application (or similar); then a window should appear where you can change a name, icon AND path of the file (where and which file you want to be run) there you choose /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird (depends on in which directory you put it - this is the best solution)
