make a file called amsn.

cd /path/to/your/program
wish amsn

That is your file. Saved it then give permission to your file so you can execute it.
$ chmod +x amsn

Put the file in $PATH so your system can find it. Mine is /home/myname/bin. Make the shortcut. The command is amsn.

Or even, right click the desktop. Select create new link to application. In the dialogue box, type in /the/path/to/.amsn. Save it and use it.

or another idea,
create a sym link in your /usr/bin to your amsn directory, this way you ca start amsn just by typing amsn at the command line
