LXShortCut: creating shortcuts (icons) for LXDE (Lubuntu) desktop !

Classified in : Ubuntu derivatives - Tags : LXDE, shortcuts, desktop

You've always wanted to create shortcuts for LXDE (the graphic environment of Lubuntu), but you did not know how to do it ... now it s the time to know !


Well, you could create .desktop files with a text editor (imitating the ones in /usr/share/applications) ... but it's much easier to run lxshortcut (typing the command).

So press Alt+F2, then type in:
lxshortcut -o  ~/Desktop/my_shorcut.desktop

And then a nice window, will pop up with all the fields you need to define (including an icon), save ... and that's it, you have a new shortcut icon on your desktop !

You will get more information (or not much) at the LXDE wiki.
