How to add the shotcut to the panel?


I downloaded Eclipse and it seems that you don't need to install it. That is after unzip it, there is a binary file you can execute to start Eclipse. How can I add this shotcut to taskbar panel in dropline gnome?

Thanks.

well i'm a KDE user myself..... but I would look in gnome equivilent of the KDE Control Center and see if there isn't an option to specify what is on the menu, i know there is one in KDE, then just simply specify the path to where the binary is located: ie /home/myprogram/binary if the path doesn't work throw a . before the name of that binary /home/myprogram/.binary

Well since we're on subject, I installed Gaim this afternoon and managed to get the menu to point to the program no prob. But I can't figure out how to get the icon that belongs to it. Suggestions? I'm sure it's simple.... like me

I don't just Gaim, but try looking in /usr/share/pixmaps/gaim or one of its subdirectories. Many programs create their own directories within /usr/share and/or /usr/share/pixmaps -- J.W.
