Desktop Shortcut to MC?
« on: September 24, 2014, 06:50:59 am »

Howdy fellow MC_Linuxers.  Do you, like me, want a quick way of launching MC?

Well this is what I worked out for Ubuntu_x64 Unity.

Reference:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/450266/an-easy-way-to-create-a-desktop-shortcut

For MC in detail:

Quote
1. Open a terminal

2. Launch your file manager (in my case "nautilus") as root (I'm lazy so someone else can post the command line version):
Code: [Select]
gksu nautilus
3. Navigate your way to:
/usr/share/applications/
and find Media Centre

4. Right click (brings up the context menu) on MC and select "Make Link"

5. Right click on the link and select "Properties" and select the "Permissions" tab.

6. Execute: [check] Allow executing file as program

7. Move the link to the desktop at /home/[User Name]/Desktop
    Note: / can be found in the file manager via Devices > Computer

... job done.

EDIT: Added further info at Step 7
