creating desktop application with same xterm code

I can only seem to run a certain program from a terminal and would like to create a desktop application button in suse to perform this action. I have tried many methods and did some searching, but to no avail.

Any help?

I just thought I should give some more information.

I have done this task with rdesktop already and it worked.

In an xterm I enter

wine /home/tsch...../PokerStarsUpdate.exe, but when i put this into an application icon I don't get the same results.

When I check that box and the "do not cose terminal when code finished" box the terminal stays open, but there is nothing in it and the program still does not run.

thanks for the suggestion
