Previously , you can create desktop icon in Ubuntu by using “Create Launcher” option which was available when you right-click on desktop . But now in current versions like Ubuntu 11.04/11.10 you cannot create desktop icon in that same manner . In Ubuntu 11.04/ Ubuntu 11.10 , you have to install package to create desktop icon .
First of all , Install Package through terminal .
sudo apt-get install –no-install-recommends gnome-panel
If done , Create your first desktop icon through following command.
gnome-desktop-item-edit –create-new ~/Desktop
That’s it done !!
