Hi, been looking around, think im going to be using this alot, just installed mandrake 9.1.

i have also installed amsn , but i want to create a shortcut. i know you need to ./ or $ wish it to run, and have entered the path to the file, but it won't do it!how do i make a shortcut to this program?is the problem because it isnt a self executable, that why i have to use ./ to run it?

thanks in advance.

when you make a shortcut you can just point to the amsn don't have to worry about the ./
for instance when viewing the location of my shortcut icon for amsn it says /home/USER/msn/amsn
and thats it..
