Arrow Launcher not working

Whats up all?
I recently downloaded a tarball of GQView, great program. My problem is I can't get it to work from a desktop launcher. I can make it work within the terminal by entering the directory for this program and typing in 'gqview'. I have already tried /gqview and /.gqview... I am attaching a listing of all the files in the directory.

[shane@localhost gqview-1.2.2]$ ls
ABOUT-NLS config.guess COPYING install-sh NEWS
acconfig.h gqview.1 intl po
aclocal.m4 config.log gqview.desktop m4 README
AUTHORS config.rpath gqview.png src
ChangeLog config.sub gqview.spec
confdefs.h configure missing TODO
config.cache INSTALL mkinstalldirs

Again, Thank You All Very Much!

For the launcher, use the full path to gqview. In other words, got to a command prompt, type which gqview and use the output as the command for the launcher to use.
