How to create a launcher in Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon

http://www.linuxandlife.com – I just tried Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon today and realized that when you right click on the desktop, there is no option to create a launcher. Of course, you can just drag the applications in the menu to the desktop to create the launchers but this is not very efficient in case you want a custom launcher. To create a custom launcher in any folder in Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon, just hit Alt + F2 or open the terminal then run the following command: gnome-desktop-item-edit /path/to/the/folder --create-new For example, if you want to create a launcher in your default Music folder, the command will be: gn (Distributions)
