Right-click the desktop and choose Create Launcher.

A form will appear. The mandatory fields are Name and Command. The Command is exactly what you would type at the command-line. You can also click on the Icon square and pick an icon. When you are done click OK.

Drag the Launcher on to the panel if you want to put it there rather than on the desktop.
