This works for KDE

Right click, choose Create New > File > Link to Application

On the General tab you can name the shortcut and choose the icon and on the Application tab you can enter command path or navigate via Browse button to the required app'

For Gnome

(from memory
Right Click and go to New Launcher
the rest is more or less the same
