  • What desktop environment do you have installed? (KDE, Gnome, etc) Jan 13, 2017 at 4:29
  • In KDE you can right click in the desktop widget and go to create new -> link to application.

    You just need to create a *.desktop file for it. Simply adapting an example should take you two minutes. You can take a look at askubuntu.com/a/112259/585715 for example. Jan 14, 2017 at 7:05
  • I will try it and put it on gnome menu.I have been created softlink on /home/user/Desktop. I can execute it without run it from terminal.
