[ubuntu] Creating Desktop Shortcuts

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Is there a way to create desktop shortcuts in Ubuntu 12.10? I could not do it since 11.10... Really put me off Ubuntu because of these minor annoyances that I take for granted in Windows. I can create shortcuts via my Cinnamon menu bar by right clicking on the apps. However, I cannot add shortcuts for the stuff in Places like my HDs. I am also trying to create Wine shortcuts to run my Windows software. Any idea how to do all this? (Hardware)
