Question how to create an icon on desktop with ICEWM


I'm on linux Mandrake 9.0. and I wonder how do you create an application icon on desktop with ICEWM?
If I right-click on the desktop there's no Create New and I get cmd not found when I try to run icepref on an Xterm.

Thanks in advance.

IceWM has no icons on desktop. I used Rox-Filer ( to get icons on desktop.
