Shortcuts... Just a tip w/ Fedora Core 3

I'm new, yeah. I've been running Linux for about 4 days, and installed a bunch of programs... A lot of 'em were runnable from the command prompt only.

Easy way to run 'em without Konsole is to make a shortcut. Rightclick on the desktop (any of them will do)...

Create New --> File --> Link To Application

The main detail you'll want is the Command. That's where you put in the Konsole command to run a program...

Yeah, it's a simple command, but I figured my first post should be a tip.
