Then just click the subject path you want your link to be under and do a File New. Then you just need to type in the path for the program and an icon of your liking.
Then Just File Save, File Quit, and you're done.

Damn dude, you're the best. It works.
I had a problem earlier cause I had always just right clicked on the desktop and created a shortcut there.
This time though when I typed in firefox it always came back as not being able to load it. I couldn't find the executable for a lack of better word. BTW, what is the correct term for the executable in linux?

anyway, thanks for your help and I'll keep this little menu editor in mind for future reference.

No problem!

executable is probably the best term for a program you're trying to run.

usually when you install firefox on Suse, it puts it in one of the bin folders so when you just type "firefox" with no absolute path it picks it up. You may want to give that a shot. If all else fails, just create a shortcut for it in your ~/bin file or for all users in your /usr/bin folder.

thank you for the information

I see I have one folder in my "Documents" folder named firefox-installer and then there's the firefox-1.0.3.installer.tar.gz
I'm thinking that when this downloaded it should of went to like the desktop? and then I should of unzipped and installed??
